Spirulina Energy Globes is a great way to introduce Spirulina to most – it’s also a great way to “disguise” blue-green algae for the little ones or anyone else who has an aversion to greens! They’re chewy, sweet, rich in flavor and in plant-based protein. A protein-packed portable snack using energizing foods such as nuts, seeds and Spirulina, and highly portable which can be a quick snack on the go.
