spirulina against malnutrition 

A sustainable long-term solution to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.

In 1974, the World Health Organization described spirulina as "an interesting food for multiple reasons, rich in iron and protein, and is able to be administered to children without any risk," considering it "a very suitable food." 

  • Spirulina is affordable: to feed a child in India costs between one and two Rupees a day (U.S. $ 6 to 12 per year). Many other feeding solutions are more costly and less sustainable.
  • Spirulina is effective: one gram per day is sufficient enough to correct severe malnutrition in a child in a few weeks. New studies suggest that Spirulina not only improves the physical development of the child but also cognitive performance.
  • Spirulina helps people affected by HIV/AIDS to gain weight and feel better in their daily life.

The United Nations established the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition in 2003.

In the late 1980s and early 90s, both NASA (CELSS) and the European Space Agency (MELiSSA) proposed spirulina as one of the primary foods to be cultivated during long-term space missions.
