Nutrition value of Prodiet at a glance
Presented here is a brief recap of nutrition value of Prodiet Spirulina. For every 100 grams of Prodiet Spirulina, there are 60~70 grams of protein, a total of 290 calories. Compare that to 100 grams of animal food and you will only find 26 grams of protein within 250 calories. However, you won’t be making spirulina patties anytime soon. 100 grams of spirulina may be equal to quarter a bottle, depending on how it is sold. But a small teaspoon of spirulina can add upto 4 grams of protein to your shake.
Vitamin breakdown: Thiamine, Riboflavin, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, zinc, beta-carotene, and chlorophyll. There are many other vitamins present, albeit in much smaller quantities. Its an all natural, powerhouse supplement that’s great for immunity and detoxifying the body.
Why we prefer to go Smoothie way?
Spirulina is kind of treated as a add-on to recipes. Most online recipes seem to incorporate just a toss of spirulina, under-utilizing its flavor. It is a tricky food since it tends to make everything bright green. The fastest and perhaps easiest way to get it in your system is to mix a teaspoon with a cup of almond milk or orange juice. Benefits galore, we are now believing in “A teaspoon of Spirulina a day, will keep the doctor away”.
