Phycocyanin is the natural blue pigment extract of the broken cell wall of spirulina, a type of blue-green algae that grows in fresh water and salt water. The blue extracted version is also known as blue majik.
The benefits of blue spirulina are that it is high in protein and iron.
For vegans, a little more iron here and there is usually a good thing! I like adding this blue spirulina as a natural food coloring to my smoothies, smoothie bowls, and even frosting. It’s expensive, but a little goes a long way.
