How to eat Spirulina powder?
I bought Spirulina powder to help with radiation and general health, but it's so damn nasty to get down..noone wants to eat it..anyone have any good ideas..Suppose to use 1tbs per day but can barely get a teaspoon down without gagging.

Buy the tablets, forget the powder...but if you insist on poweder, try adding it to some juice. If you let it sit for a minute, it'll be less grainy when you consume.

You have to get a cup with a tight fitting lid. Put a teaspoon in with about a 1/4 cup of juice and shake the shit out of it. (Stirring it with a spoon doesn't mix it enough.) Drink it in one or two gulps and you're done.

It's not that bad...just have some water handy to wash it down with.

I buy the stuff in 5 lb cans then capsule it. Cant eat it unless you like moss and pond scum. But it is very nutritious.

I have an un-used container of the powder also! Let's just say I have kept it, but if I catch sight of it, a natural gag reflex happens.

In a store nearby, they sell huge old bags of Powdered Squid; I imagine the flavor is similar to spirulina.

There are capsule machines and capsules available. I use those instead of the tablets for better absorbtion.

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
Tablets or capsules. The powder is a mess. My wife puts it in Miso soup, but that just looks gross and disgusting. The taste is not something I would go for in my personal food supply.

Yeah, it seems to me that the clear juices seem to work better at making it smooth. Apple, grape, etc....I have a juicer, and the raw juices seem to make it coagulate....but the (store bought) 100% apple juice, turns it into a smooth concoction.

Also if you want to encapsulate yourself wo/filling machine: Take zip lock bag, fill it with powder, and snip off a very small piece of the corner of the bag. Over a large bowl, take your gel capsules and fill them. It helps to have a second person help you...while you fill, they cap.

You can also use the scooping method, where you just place powder in bowl and scoop and cap...and when your done, just put the extra powder back in container, and wait until next month.

Honestly, it can save you money...but it is a serious pain in the ass. ha!

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
I mix a couple tablespoons of Spirulina, a tablespoon of Chlorella, a heaping tablespoon of chia seed powder, a scoop of high quality chocolate flavored whey protein powder, and a scoop of greens first in 16 oz of cold almond milk and shake it for a couple minutes.

It goes down VERY easily. It's delicious actually. And everything in it is super good for you.

Agreed.........grape juice is strong enough to offset the bad taste.


Consider tablets as well.


For kids,............you can buy the drink "Naked" in food stores. It is green in color but mixed with all sorts of other nice things. Kids can handle the taste.

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
you can get used to the taste if you try. try a tsp in a pint of water. stir for aprox 120 seconds. tabs are ok, homade gells are cheaper. But if you want to eat 5-10 grams a day, it adds up to alot of time making pills. alot. but loose lbs of spirulina powder are 16 bones from my supplier and tabs are 4 times more expensive. Id rather just have more powder in my diet for less money and suck it up on drinking it. its just not that bad if you can convince yourself out of your revulsion. And the benefits are real.
