Our Spirulina is from Hainan in China (one of the few products that we buy from China), however, it is sourced from clean, fresh-water ponds on an island off the Chinese Mainland far from any industrial activity. We are confident in the veracity of the testing undertaken by our supplier, who are certified as GMO free, irradiation free and have the highest environmental standards.
Before the algae is grown, a small batch of ‘source-seed’ is carefully selected to ensure that the strain has the highest nutritional contents possible. This small batch is then grown in laboratory conditions until sufficient quantity is available to be transplanted to external cultivation ponds. After the spirulina batch is made in the laboratory it is moved to external cultivation ponds which contain natural underground water that is extensively filtered prior to use. The spirulina then grows in these ponds through photosynthesis. The optical density of the spirulina is measured regularly and once it reaches the appropriate level, the spirulina is harvested.
We only ever source products from China where we are assured of thgis level of quality, and our organic products are Soil Association Certified. We understand some customers concerns given the negative media on Chinese production. However we can assure you that China is a big place (nearly the size of all the European Union countries combined!), and while we are unable to speak for all suppliers we are confident in the veracity of the testing undertaken by our supplier. In addition to this, our producer is certified organic by the Soil Association which is a UK organic certification body. The Soil Association have very high standards for organic farming methods.
Our products make no medicinal claims, they are intended to support the body towards natural health.
