Why I have never seen fresh spirulina for sale before?

Fresh spirulina has never been available to most people. All of the large spirulina growers and almost all of the small farms have focused on dried spirulina because it is a cheaper and easier business. Making powder means that you don’t have to worry about refrigeration or storage life. We believe people today are looking for a real healthy plant-based food, not just a supplement. We believe that simple nutritious fresh foods are the best way to get the nutrition we need to be healthy. It’s a riskier business move for us, but we think people are really ready for this kind of food, and we hope you think so too.

What is the difference between powdered spirulina and IMGM Fresh Spirulina?

All forms of spirulina are extremely nutrient-dense and can be a great addition to your diet. However, Fresh Spirulina is live harvested and raw to protect its natural vitality. Spirulina by nature is a delicate creature. This makes the nutrients in fresh spirulina extremely bioavailable and significantly more potent than its powdered counterpart. 

Powdered spirulina often has a fishy or sea-like taste and odour. Fresh spirulina has almost no taste or odour. Just nutrient packed goodness in every spoonful.
