What does Spirulina taste like?

Oh, well… something like a murky lagoon silt on a hot tropical night…Gotchu!

Just kidding, it actually tastes quite nice (once you get used to it):
Savory flavor with a hint of metallic taste (much like colloidal silver and similar oligo-elements), and some sulfur notes depending on the variety of Spirulina – there are as many as 36 varieties – the water it has grown in, etc.

Organically certified grown in spring source water is the best one.

If you are actually used to eat other seaweeds, Spirulina will taste similar to any of them with a more pronounced mineral rich taste.

If you are transitioning to a vegetarian or vegan diet it will help you to replace the taste of fish advantageously.

If you can’t stomach it and even the smell repels you, I got good news for you: there are plenty of Spirulina capsules and coated pills to choose from; as for the powder, and in your best interest, go for organic supplements.
