As a supplement, spirulina offers remarkable benefits for undernourished people, especially children, with a long historical record of safe use. Taking just one to three grams per day, its rich beta-carotene can overcome eye problems caused by Vitamin A deficiency. There is a growing body of research with undernourished people showing how spirulina restores beneficial intestinal flora and strengthens the immune system. Because spirulina can be cultivated in outdoor ponds with relatively little upfront investment, many initiatives have established village production using appropriate technology and available resources. Over the past 30 years, numerous projects have been growing spirulina as a local food in Africa, Asia and South America. Here are brief descriptions of two of the pioneering projects and a sample from the many projects in Africa and Asia today.
