Hi there, am interested to know how best to cover up the taste of Spirulina. Does anyone have any clever ideas that work? At the moment I’m putting it in juice in powder form and downing it as fast as possible. I’ve tried it in Smoothies but it’s rather grim so am hoping that someone out there has a combination that makes it more pleasant. Thanks.
i went to a smoothie class at Cru (in silverlake los angeles $15 bucks every sat at 10:30 diff topics) last saturday and she said pomegranite juice does the trick….p.s. i couldn’t try it cause I was fasting but worth a try.
Spirulina is 65% protein – the highest source of protein found in any food (it contains all 8 essential amino acids). It also the world’s highest known plant-source of vitamin B-12 and also includes a load of vitamins, chlorophyll, cell salts, phytonutrients, and enzymes.
Am going to try apple juice and celery (possibly both together!) to see if it works – and berries to stop it sticking to everything. Thanks.
It’s hard to remember now but when you taste it you wonder how you could possibly forget. It’s not bitter and it’s not sour. It’s strong and overpowers all other tastes. I’ll find the right word when I have it tomorrow morning and get back to you….
Believe it or not, raspberry crystal ice makes it pretty palatable. I know that it has artificial sweetners, yadda, yadda, yadda... But I think the health benefits of the spirulina make up for that. Especially if its the only way to get it down.
I think the problem is people put it into there smoothies and such have to drink jugs of spirulina tastingness. If you dont like the taste of spirulina this can taint and ruin your love of the fruits etc its mixed with.
The easiest way to consume herbs, superfoods etc that you dont like the taste of is to put the required dose in a small glass with an oz or two of water/fruit juice. Mix well and chug it back quickly. This has always been my preferred method. Alternatively if you even find the above hard you can buy some empty vegetarian capsules and capsule up the spirulina powder. Will still work out lots cheaper than buying the tablets, encapsulated versions which crazy mark up etc.
