MYSPIRULINA is the Bulgarian winner of E-Health category

Country: Bulgaria

Category: E-Health

Project Aim: producing a bioreactor designed to cultivate the spirulina at home, very easily and without the need for additional knowledge or equipment. In this way, each person can satisfy his or her needs by acquiring direct spirulina at home using our small and stylish device.

What is the problem to solve?

In the recent years, the problem of unhealthy nutrition has increasingly come to the fore in the form of various analyses and articles on obesity, as well as an increase in number of diseases and clinical conditions caused by the food we consume and the lifestyle that we have. At the same time, the topic of the food itself – its origin and quality – is becoming more and more current. There is also more and more talk about different kinds of super foods and nutritional supplements that aim to enrich the intake of different nutrients and improve our diet.

What does MYSPIRULINA do:

One of that super foods is the Spirulina alga, and we are producing a bioreactor designed to cultivate the spirulina at home, very easily and without the need for additional knowledge or equipment. In this way, each person can satisfy his or her needs by acquiring direct spirulina at home using our small and stylish device. On the one hand, this guarantees the quality if the product and the fact that, unlike the dry Spirulina, which has undergone multiple treatments and has lost up to 60% of its qualities, the fresh one is fit for direct use and does not lose its qualities. What is more, the fresh one has a pleasant taste compared to the dry one.

So, what exactly Spirulina is and why is it defined by the UN as the superfood of the Future? This alga is potentially of great importance for human nutrition because of the overall nutritional qualities, over 100 Nutrients, of which: 60-70% protein, all essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals (iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, selenium and zinc), unique pigments, omega-3 and omega6 fatty acids, etc.

The quality and nutritional value of spirulina makes it suitable for use by all people, but our focus is people interested in healthy eating and healthy lifestyle, vegetarians and vegans, as well as people with an active lifestyle who regularly exercise.
