Transcript of Fresh Skyline Spirulina

Spirulina What is Spirulina? What are the Nutritional Benefits? How Does Spirulina Help the Environment? Why Fresh Spirulina? How is Spirulina produced? Why Fresh Spirulina? Spirulina Production Natural lakes Open ponds But we have our own new method... Small-scale open air ponds Commercial race-way ponds Large-scale commercial production happens in man-made, concrete lined raceway ponds. They require large plots of land, usually situated in remote and arid environments to prevent contamination. Closed-circuit production Starting in Bangkok, Thailand - this system utilizes unusable, non-arable land such as urban rooftops to install closed-circuit bio-reactors. http://www.ewb.org.au/images/uploads/2011participants/spirulina%20production.jpg Used to generate income and as a method to combat localized malnutrition A REVIEW ON CULTURE, PRODUCTION AND USE OF SPIRULINA AS FOOD FOR HUMANS AND FEEDS FOR DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND FISH p. 6 What is Skyline Spirulina? Skyline Spirulina a brand of EnerGaia Co Ltd Learn more about Skyline Spirulina at http://www.skylinespirulina.com To maximize its reproductive potential, Spirulina should be grown in ambient temperatures of 30 - 39 degC with direct sunlight, clean air and water.

The two most common methods of Spirulina production today are: Transforming Rooftops into Gardens Using proprietary technology, Skyline Spirulina is converting formerly barren rooftops into sites for urban agriculture Bangkok and Beyond Environmental Impact Spirulina directly consumes 2 kg of carbon for 1 kg grown Nutritional Benefits Spirulina is a complete protein source, containing all eight essential amino acids plus an additional eight beneficial amino acids Minerals contained in Spirulina include: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc Contains Vitamins A, B, C and is a source beta-Carotene A source of the anti-inflammatory γ-Linolenic acid or GLA Simple sugar cell-wall making it easy to digest and absorb http://simplegreenorganichappy.com/2012/06/supernutrients-nutrex-hawaii-spirulina-astaxanthin/ Spirulina Nutritional Profile Protein: 17.76 g Calcium: 36 mg Iron: 8.37 mg Magnesium: 57 mg Potassium: 381 mg Zinc: .6 mg Vitamin C 2.7 mg Vitamin A (RAE) 9 µg Creative new cooking possibilities beta-Carotene: 99 µg for 300 g fresh spirulina Neutral taste Easy to add to any meal Locally produced visit http://www.skylinespirulina.com for sample recipes and alternative Spirulina uses Unprocessed, provides all nutritional benefits Requires less water than pretty much all terrestrial crops Takes much less energy than animal protein to produce Requires less land to grow than any other food crop Does not deplete nutrients from land Skyline Spirulina is based in Bangkok, Thailand and is committed to supplying cities with a sustainable source of healthy, highly nutritious food. Today we are in Bangkok, tomorrow could be your city What is Spirulina? Spirulina is a single celled blue-green algae 3.5 billion years old, it is credited with contributing to the creation of Earth's breathable atmosphere through photosynthesis A source of nutrition for population living near naturally growing Spirulina as early as the Aztecs, global awareness of Spirulina only occurred in 1967 Spirulina's ability to photosynthesize is because of the presence of Chloroyphyl which is also responsible for Spirulina's green color If you consume 30g - 40g Skyline Spirulina a day, or 300 g Fresh Spirulina a week, you will consume the same value of: Iron of 170 grams of beef liver Zinc of 71 g of spinach Protein of 216 g of beef Calcium of 116 g of fresh tofu Magnesium of 210 g of banana Replacing animal protein with Spirulina reduces the carbon footprint by 10x Learn more about EnerGaia and our technology at http://www.energaia.com
