Earthrise’s California grown spirulina is known for its quality. The Earthrise® Farm is located in the Sonoran Desert of southeastern California. In this remote and sunny part of the country, far from cities, highways and airports, the air is clean. Mineral-rich Colorado river water is pumped through canals to large settling ponds, then through filters into the growing ponds. From this environment, free of pesticides and herbicides, Earthrise Spirulina yields more nutrition per acre than any other food.
California grown spirulina is about producing and cultivating the purest, cleanest, and safest spirulina. The heavy heat and sunlight combined with the mineral-rich Colorado river make Earthrise’s spirulina the ideal location to grown spirulina. Our California grown spirulina stays 100% pure during its entire growth process because we do not use irradiation, chemicals, herbicides or pesticides. High quality spirulina comes from the best environments and growing practices.
Proposition 65 Compliant Spirulina
Our proprietary growing methods and constant testing ensure the highest quality. We also do all of our packaging on site, enabling us to guarantee the overall quality of our products. Every day, farm scientists conduct dozens of rigorous tests to ensure that our quality exceeds all national and international food standards. Earthrise’s California grown spirulina is Prop 65 compliant and exceeds all food safety requirements.
California’s Proposition 65, also called the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, was enacted in 1986. It is intended to help Californians make informed decisions about protecting themselves from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. As part of the law, the state is required to publish a list of chemicals that are “known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.” The list is updated at least once a year and now contains about 800 different chemicals.1
