Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are plants or animals that are created through the experimental gene splicing techniques of biotechnology. GMOs have not been proven to be safe and may cause health issues. There is no mandatory labeling of GMOs in the US and Canada, where GMOs are present in over 80% of packaged foods.
Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica is a unique superior strain of Spirulina with the highest known nutritional content in the world. It’s all natural, 100% vegetarian and Kosher Certified. It’s the only Spirulina cultured in a BioSecure Zone free of herbicides and pesticides on the sunny Kona coast of Hawaii. Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica thrives in ponds fed with 100% fresh drinking water from Hawaiian aquifers and pure, deep ocean water drawn from 2000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. This ultra-pure, deep ocean water enriches Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica with trace minerals, and is a unique natural resource used in the company’s patented Ocean Chill Drying™ technology, which ensures maximum nutrient potency.
