Questions & Answers for Organic Spirulina Powder

Is this spirulina free from traces of gluten? I.e. processed/packaged in a facility where gluten-containing grains have not been processed?

Many thanks
Question by: Maddie on March 15, 2014
This product is gluten-free (defined by less than 10 parts per million of gluten, per the FDA). While there are a handful of items in our facility that may contain small amounts gluten (ie: not grains), we have programs in place to avoid cross-contamination through proper allergen labeling, segregation, cleaning, etc..

Are there traces of heavy metals in your spirulina? I hope I'm not retoxing what I would like to detox!
Question by: Joshua on March 29, 2014
Almost everything, including all spirulina we've tested, has trace amounts of heavy metals. That said, our guess is that you're probably more interested in whether or not this product has a significant amount of heavy metals that you should be concerned about - it does not.

We test every lot we receive for a variety of heavy metals, and we compare them to our own test history (of thousands of lots) to make sure they're within normal ranges for that product (our limits for all products are well below FDA or any other regulatory standards). To give you a better idea for this product, the latest lot had less than 0.1 parts per million arsenic, no mercury down to our detection limit (10 parts per billion, I believe), 0.02 parts per million cadmium, and 0.35 parts per million lead. These are all extremely low levels of heavy metals.
