However, some restaurants manage to do all of spirulina true gastronomic wonders. At home, we can safely add the powder to shakes, smoothies, salads and yogurts.

Chia seeds

How useful is so insidious and calcium in terms of digestibility.

Without iron, potassium, phosphorus and vitamins A and C is also not done. Moreover, amaranth flour helps to reduce blood sugar levels, unlike their counterparts wheat and therefore good for the prevention of diabetes.
