The Gandalf brand has been around for 35 years, and we are well known for our high standards and high quality products. The quality and freshness of our spirulina is maintained with our specialized packaging system which locks out oxygen and light, as beta-carotene is very sensitive to air and light, and spirulina oxidizes easily. Our spirulina is very dark green and not light green, and it is also almost odorless.  Our optimal protection package, from which residual air can be removed, preserves the integrity of the product. 

An oxygen-free environment of less than 1% is used in the drying process to ensure the integrity and high quality of Gandalf Spirulina.

Gandalf Spirulina is approved by Health Canada and registered with a NPN (Natural Product Number).

Algae accumulate heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and cadmium when their cultivation environment is polluted or poorly controlled.  Our cultivation process is rigorously controlled providing a pure, fresh, clean, tasty superfood.
