    What is Phycocyanin Powder?

    Natural spirulina has a certain fishy smell, and some people dislike it. However, when mixed with spirulina in juice or smoothies, this odor will fade or even disappear. With the advancement of process technology, the phycocyanin extracted now has no fishy smell.

    Spirulina tablets

    Phycocyanin (also known as Blue Spirulina) is the first active ingredient in spirulina. Phycocyanin not only gives Spirulina a distinctive blue color but also provides strong anti-inflammatory and free radical resistance. The extracted phycocyanin is in the form of blue powder or blue liquid, which can provide a bright blue color to ice cream, milkshakes, solid drinks, baking, candy, etc.
