Is the Sprirulina you buy free of PAH? Does it have safe heavy metal levels?
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a CMR group of compounds (carcinogenic, mutagentic and reprotoxic) that accumulate in the environment because of its persistent, bio-accumulative character. PAH enters the environment through air and eventually gets into the food chain, accumulating in the fatty tissues when consumed - causing irreparable damage. Among more than 100 different PAH identified, 16 have been found to have potential impact - four of which have been identified as more critical (PAH 4). Limits have been fixed for the same in various foods - including algae - by EU regulation 2015/1993. Exposure to these PAHs is linked to lung, liver, and skin cancers.
