4. Degree of cracking
The national standard is to lay down the hard ground from 2 meters, just not broken, to ensure transportation, or to break it with a little force, no non-functional ingredients such as starch and adhesives are added during the production process. It is good for gastrointestinal digestion and high absorption rate. The inferior spirulina is added with a binder during tablet production, which has extremely high hardness and is not easy to break. After human consumption, it increases the gastrointestinal burden, resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort and low absorption rate.
Fill the transparent glass with tap water and soak a grain of spirulina to let it dissolve naturally. It swells and pulverizes in a good day, soaking for one to two days shows a pure blue color, and the bluer the better, the deeper the better , and the backlight is purple (active substance).
