Spirulina sp. has been used for a long time by people as consumable food in several parts of the world. Many food products can be produced by using Spirulina or their compounds, for instance, isotonic beverages, cereal bars, instant soups, pudding, cake powder mix, and biscuits (Andrade et al., 2018; Santos et al., 2016). In this sense, Spirulina sp. can be used as a source of protein and amino acids for malnourished people. Furthermore, Spirulina biomass can be used in foods because it has a GRAS certificate granted by FDA. The protein content in Spirulina can vary from 50% to 70%wt., since its synthesis can be manipulated or influenced by cultivation or environmental conditions, such as concentrations of nitrogen and minerals, light intensity, and climatic conditions . Most cyanobacteria, including Spirulina, are able to synthesize vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, a water-soluble vitamin that is involved in the metabolism of every cell function in human body; it is a cofactor in DNA synthesis and amino acid metabolism. People who have a vegan diet, such as vegans and vegetarians, are highly advised to consume Spirulina biomass as source of B12. In addition to the vitamin B complex, other vitamins such as vitamin K, vitamin A, isomers of tocopherols (vitamin E), as well as metabolic intermediates can be found in Spirulina biomass.


Food field:

Some foods with added Spirulina biomass have been developed, including bakery Spirulina products with 2% of microalga, for example, rice pasta, sfogliatine, and grissini are produced by Microlife Nutrition in Italy. Novel yoghurt products containing high protein content, supplemented with 6% of Spirulina biomass and 10% of papaya pulp have been developed, too.

Among microalgal pigments, phycobiliproteins (phycocyanin and phycoerythrin) have an important role in the commercial and biotechnological sectors, with wide applications as natural dyes, food supplements, and antioxidants, and in biomedical and pharmaceutical areas. Phycocyanin mainly produced by A. platensis is used in the food industry as a colorant, especially in dairy and milky products (fermented milk, milk shakes, and ice cream), jellies, coated soft candies, soft drinks, health drinks, sour milk and green tea, confectionaries (blue smarties), desserts, and sweet cake decoration.
