spirulina tablets vs powder

      As a dietary supplement, Spirulina has different ingredient labeling requirements from food, although its safety is still regulated by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States. Spirulina can be taken alone or mixed with food in the form of powder or tablets.

About Spirulina

Spirulina is a dry blue-green seawater algae. Spirulina is rich in carotenoids and B vitamins, including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and zinc, according to the Langerney Medical Center of New York University. It is also a good source of protein. According to the weight of Spirulina platensis, the protein content is more than 70%. Spirulina is often touted as having therapeutic and nutritional value, although many claims have not yet been confirmed.

Digestion process

Your digestive system can absorb spirulina tablets and powders, although because the tablets are harder and more compact, they can be digested either undigested or partially. This means that you may not be able to get the full nutritional value of Spirulina. Although Spirulina powder has the advantage of being easier to absorb, if it is used in combination with foods that are difficult for your body to process, you may also lose the nutrients of Spirulina. For example, if you have mild lactose intolerance and add Spirulina to the ice sand, your body may not be able to absorb all Spirulina.

Attention packing

To maintain its shape and provide looseness, tablets usually contain fillers or adhesives, such as silicon dioxide. According to Spirulina Australia, the binder is not easily digested by your body, which makes it more difficult for your system to break down tablets and absorb the nutrients of Spirulina adequately. Because the ingredients are listed in the order of weight in the final product, the higher the content of the binder in the ingredient list - for example, the more the binder in the third ingredient rather than the fifth ingredient - Spirulina tablets. Some tablets do not contain adhesives or fillers; check the label "no adhesives".

Easy to use

One of the biggest benefits of tablets is that they are easy to store and carry, which means you can take Spirulina almost anywhere. However, Spirulina powder is very suitable for baking food or beverage, which not only makes it easy to consume Spirulina in a day, but also provides nutrition for finished products. 1 to 2 tablespoons Spirulina platensis were added to fresh fruit juice or ice sand, mixed or stirred evenly to make a nutritious "green" beverage. You can also mix Spirulina with dried products for baking or use it in salad dressing to increase texture and nutrition
