Galdieria blue extract is a natural, phycocyanin color, similiar to spirulina. It is made via simple water extraction from the microalgae Galdieria sulphuraria. Because of the microalgae's natural environment, the color produced is more acid stable than spirulina, allowing it to be used in a wider range of applications like beverages!
TRACEABILITY, OF COURSE!
Fermentation is a method of growing our microalgae in a sterile, 'closed system'. This means there is no impact from the external environment as can be found with an open pond system, giving us more control over the process. It also allows us to scale up quickly without using large amounts of land, water, and power so you get:
