How is Spirulina Farmed?
Countries such in Africa where their people are suffering from lack of nutrition, and also lands that have now turned barren, are taking on the farming Spirulina superfood for its superior nutrition. Also, it is a crop that can create profitable returns.
Waste matter is recycled into nutrients. Apparently this is the only form of food that Spirulina need to grow. It’s not dependent upon fertilizers for its growth. In most cases waste materials and even human waste (Third World countries) is placed into a biogas-digester before it is released to the Algae. It’s that simple.
The result is that the waste is converted into carbon dioxide and then added to the Spirulina.
Later, the Spirulina is collected and strained through a very fine wire mesh. It is then collected as a paste. This paste is then left to dry in a solar heated dryer, eventually made into flakes which can be sold locally or to market.
