Cyanotech’s Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica tests superior



Cyanotech Corporation, a world leader in producing high-value nutrition and health products from microalgae, has announced the results of nutritional comparison testing between Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica®, California Spirulina and Indian Organic Spirulina.

“We are ecstatic over the results,” said Andrew H. Jacobson, Cyanotech president and CEO. “We have always been recognized as a global nutrition leader and these results make following the leader much harder.”

An independent third-party lab tested the nutritional content in three grams of Spirulina powder and the results clearly identified Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica as the leader in nutrition.


“These results reinforce and confirm our exceptional value proposition and nutritional leadership in the marketplace,” Jacobson said. “The combination of our continuous cultivation methods, strict quality standards, patented Ocean Chill™ drying technology, and unique location in a BioSecure Zone free from pollution ensures we produce the purest and most superior Spirulina in the world. Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica has the highest nutritional content available among competing Spirulina brands.”

Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica is exclusively cultivated in an environment most similar to nature, using 100 percent potable drinking water from Hawaiian aquifers, and pure deep ocean water with 94 trace minerals to deliver a superior product with the highest nutritional content available.

The new nutritional content and competitor comparisons reported for Cyanotech’s Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica are based on analytical results from an independent third-party laboratory, with the exception of Vitamin A, which is based entirely on label claims. The nutritional comparison for Zeaxanthin was based on label claims for Hawaiian and California Spirulina. Label claim information was not available for the Indian Organic Spirulina, therefore the comparison value for Zeaxanthin was obtained from an independent third party laboratory.

Cyanotech’s spirulina products, FDA reviewed and accepted as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use as a food ingredient, augments energy and immune response. 

Cyanotech produces these products from microalgae grown at its 90-acre facility in Hawaii using patented and proprietary technology and distributes them to nutritional supplement, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical makers and marketers in more than 40 countries worldwide.
