DEAR SPROUTMAN: Whatever happened to Spirulina? It’s hard to find and no one is taking it anymore. Does this mean it’s no good? – CINDERELLA

DEAR CINDERELLA: Just like you, when midnight came, Spirulina had to give up its spot in the limelight. But that doesn’t make you any less of a princess. Spirulina is still the highest protein source of any food, plant or animal. The same is true for its vitamin B-12. This micro-algae is now grown mostly indoors in Southern California to control is quality, purity and flavor. Mix it with carrot or apple juice and it makes the most natural protein powder available also one of our richest sources of chlorophyll, trace minerals, and enzymes. Drink up.
