Being a foodie, I think it’s great when new foods are introduced to the public. I think it’s even greater when foods are natural, and you can’t get any more natural than algae! Wait what?! Yep, you read that right. Algae. In fact this new snack by the Algae Factory is currently being funded on Kickstarter. What’s really cool is that they’re from Italia – and their accents are amazing!
But that has nothing to do with what we’re going to talk about today. Today’s discussion is on edible Algae – Spirulina to be more exact has been consumed for centuries! Some benefits of Spirulina are:
- GLUTEN AND LACTOSE FREE
- HIGH IN FIBER
- SOURCE OF PROTEIN
- OMEGA 3 AND 6
- VEGAN OK
Add in some Extra-Dark Organic Chocolate produced by a small community in Peru and we’re talking about a super delicious super food.
Where Is Spirulina Grown?
The Spirulina that The Algae Factry uses comes from different countries: in the Provence region of France and in the South of Italy there are several high quality Spirulina’s producers that grow this precious ingredient. But also in Africa: Togo and Madagascar thanks to Antenna, their NGO partner, which promotes the development of local Spirulina farms.
See The Algae Factory is also instituting a a Bite4Bite strategy:
The Algae Factory™ has decided from its very beginning to develop and implement a Bite4Bite™ Corporate Social Responsibility model that will impact both developed and developing countries alike. Sustainability is for us not only a word but rather the belief that we can truly make a difference.
Now this is giving back to the community that is helping you get started!
In order for this to all fall into place The Algae Factory needs our help! They need us to support and spread the word about their Kickstarter campaign! They’re already halfway there! Every chocolate bar counts towards a more sustainable way of life for the farmers in Africa. This is more than just a health fad, this is to help improve the lives of so many people.
So head on over, make a pledge, reap some rewards and help the world become a better place!
