Earthrise “Natural” Spirulina
- “Natural” spirulina means we are using inorganic fertilizers such as phosphorus, nitrogen, and natrium. These inorganic sources have been a natural part of the growth process of spirulina for billions of years. Spirulina grows naturally in waters rich in these inorganic fertilizers.
- “Natural” spirulina never uses fertilizer derived from plant or animal waste to avoid possible contamination.
- Earthrise spirulina is grown in manmade ponds filled with fresh water and inorganic fertilizers (phosphorus, nitrogen, natrium… etc.) that recreate the same growing conditions found in nature in order to cultivate “Natural” spirulina.
- Earthrise spirulina is grown in fully lined ponds with no runoff and no soil contamination.
“Certified Organic” Spirulina
- There is “Certified Organic” spirulina out there and it usually comes from China. They’re using plant or animal waste as their fertilizer source in order to be able to put “Certified Organic” on their label.
- Growing spirulina (aquaculture) is very different than growing fruits and vegetables (agriculture). Fruits and vegetables do not come in direct contact with these organic fertilizers, thus they have a very low risk of contamination. Spirulina, however, would come in direct contact with these plant or animal waste fertilizers…
