Mind over matter.

Pretend you are Japanese and are eating seaweed. 1dunno1

I got a cap stuck in my food pipe and it doesn't taste the best, but it is good for you.

Sprinkle it on something that has a lot of flavor to begin with.

Maybe a strong flavored juice like cran-grape or pineapple-orange.

Pills/capsules are much easier to down. You should also add chlorella to your regimen. It too is a superfood.

Don't take tumeric caps with coffee either, they tend to melt and get stuck. The blowback is not pleasant at all, powder comes back up and tends to burn the throat, and nose. Milk doesn't help, tums don't help, you just gotta wait it out. lolsign

I take Spiru-tein shakes.

The strawberry and chocolate flavors are outstanding.

I drink it everyday with unsweetened Almond milk. It's delish!

I blend a teaspoon of it with juice and toss in any fresh fruit that is around. The spirulina taste get covered but the color is not appetizing!

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
You do actually get used to the taste, heck even enjoy it, after your body realizes the good it is doing for you. My problem? Last year I had a mix of spirulina/chlorella/barley grass/wheat grass and had it with my veg/fruit smoothie, to which I mixed the elderberries in my garden with. YES ELDERBERRIES. I was literally wired and high half the day and then the extreme pain, diarrhea and vomiting occurred for hours and hours. AND HOURS. So now despite those green foods doing me good, because of the elderberries my body has programmed me to feel the gag/nausea response to any of them. Really frustrating.

Re: 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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1309109


It is an acquired taste but when I had cancer,
I used it three times a day in juice drinks.
I still like it but do not use it as often. I
also can recommend the tablets for on the road
when you want energy and focus.

Mix your spirulina in carrot juice for the best
taste, imho. I add cucumber and/or fresh beet
too. There are lots of other combinations but
my two favs are mixing the spirulina into either
carrot or fresh orange juice. It is a very good
taste with the orange. I also told myself it
was like drinking green gold since it was so
healing to my body.

Here is my favorite powder brand-

[link to www.iherb.com]

It does taste good with water and is a main
choice of mine for prepping since a little
goes a long way and it is so nutritional.

For tablets, I can highly recommend either
of these two brands. They are out of stock
at the moment but iherb gets stuff back in
very quickly and if, after reading the great
reviews, you want some, they will notify you
when they come in. These are almost a must
for a bug-out bag--

[link to www.iherb.com]

[link to www.iherb.com]

If you've never ordered from iherb before, you
can save $10 on an order of $40 or more. Plus,
orders less than $40 will receive $5 off.
Shipping is free with $40 purchase or $20 purchase
under 10 pounds.

Do not give up on your spirulina, and know that
not all spirulinas are alike. Try others and find
one you LOVE. I love the recommendations I offered.

To your health~~ dasbier

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
Don't buy the tablet form: far less effective, and they contain chemicals/have been processed to maintain their tablet form.

For eating, mix via blender into a carrot/celery juice, which counters the taste, and acts as a catalyst for easy absorption and less wastage.

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
mixed with other strong flavors it can be kind of nice...you can add it to a tangy salad dressing. Lemon Juice, Mayo, A bit of Spirulina and whatever other spices, salt n pepper might you would like with that. It was actually pretty tasty when I made it.

You can put it in a banana & almond milk shake blended w/fruit. It comes out all green but tastes like the banana. This will spike your blood glucose since the daily banana is a lot of fructose. Alternatively, just capsule it.

Or over turkey gravy

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.
 Quoting: RyanH 21704388


I do something similar a raw fudge,
I mix raw extra virgin coconut oil
with the green stuff and cocoa or cacao and some sweetener.
I like to add other spices or herbs like cinnamon, nutmeg, powdered ginseng and whatever I have on hand.
Can always add more sweetener if it's too bitter.

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
Try SPIRULINA mixed into soft served icecream, like vanilla or chocolate= it's YUMMY.The sweetness really offsets the natural flavor. Even at a very heavy handed spirulina doses the icecream then tastes then more like Japanese Matcha.Still yummy. I love this to kickstart my day with energy or in the afternoons.Also great in chocolate pudding!

Additionally, spirulina is very tasty yodasprinkled lightly on most foods, add it like seasoning to sandwiches,burgers, salads or mixed by the spoonful into hummus.Very savory foods and sweet foods do really well with additions of spirulina. TRY IT.yoda

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
Are there any new ideas on how to get this stuff down? I just bought my first container of organic spirulina and the smell is so GROSS.

My first attempt was to mix it with juice but the colour was impossible to drink, it looked and smelled like swamp water, the longer it sat on my desk the more I noticed it settles to the bottom of the glass.

What if I mixed it with pesto and put it on pasta?

Or mixed it with tomato juice?

Or mixed it with lemon juice & olive oil and put on a kale salad?

It's mostly the weird colour and smell I need to hide, the taste I think is easier to hide.

Re: How to eat Spirulina powder?
Im not sure about translating measures..

I take one teaspoon, in one big glass of fresh pressed red grape juice.

It gets green brownish, but the taste gets better.

Usually i also add seed oils (30 drops each) of, borago officinialis, cannabis sativa (hempseed), oenothera biennis,
Linum usitatissimum.
