We recently visit the Park Hyatt Hotel in Zurich to try out some new food creations by Executive Chef Frank Widmer. Frank had prepared a beautiful feast for us – with all the dishes containing one very special ingredient – Spirulina!

We began with a little feta cheese salad with spirulina, followed by a mushroom and spirulina pasta dish, finishing off with a crème brulée, once again containing spirulina.

As usual Frank did an amazing job and all dishes were delicious. In fact the spirulina was only really discernible by the colour it added to the dishes.

So what is Spirulina exactly? Well it’s an Algae which has been recently hailed as a superfood for its health giving properties. Blueish green in colour, it is rich in protein, various minerals including iron and magnesium, essential amino and fatty acids, as well as antioxidants including Vitamin C.

Spirulina’s benefits go on and on. It is said to improve concentration, reduce susceptibility to infection, to help with digestion, malnourishment, weight loss and cholesterol problems. It also improves the condition of hair and nails and glowing skin.

Swiss Company Pharmalp & SPIRUL-1

In Frank’s dishes the Spirulina was added to the ingredients in powder form, but Swiss company Pharmalp have launched a tablet form of the superfood tablet called SPIRUL-1. By simply taking one SPIRUL-1 tablet a day you can help your body feel more vital and fight against infection and fatigue – something which will be increasingly important as the temperatures drop and we move into the Winter cold season!
