How does shipping work?
We currently ship once a week during an optimum window so that our Spirulina maintains its freshness all through the delivery process. To maintain its peak freshness our Spirulina is deliberately packed and shipped frozen and when it arrives at your door it is in a liquid state. You’ll receive an instruction slip with your order, which encourages you to place it in the freezer as soon as you receive it.
Can I track my shipment during delivery?
Yes! A tracking number will be sent out with the confirmation email so you can keep tabs on your Fresh Liquid Spirulina and plan to receive.
What's the tempereature during the shipping process?
Spirulina is a 3.6 billion year-old microalgae. It can withstand multiple freezing and thawing cycles without nutrient loss, as long as temperatures are kept under 30C for less than 48 hours. We ship it frozen. You will receive it cold and liquid. Please freeze it upon arrival and defrost only individual sachets that you will consume.
