Notes about the quality of this product: The product is grown in the USA with â��no preservatives, dyes, pesticides or radiation used in its production.â�� It is listed as â��Kosherâ�� and â��non-GMO.â�� It is not certified as â��organic.â�� The material used is suitable for human consumption.
The material is not organic--they use inorganic, but natural, fertilizers such as phosphorus, nitrogen, etc. Some organic spirulina is available from imported sources and that they use plant and/or animal waste as their fertilizer source. During production, the spirulina would be in direct contact with these waste products, increasing the risk of possible contamination (unlike organic fruits and vegetables which would not have direct contact with the organic waste materials used to fertilize the plants). Given the choice, it may be better to obtain a USA-made product.
