Abstract

Cyanobacteria have a long evolutionary history and documented fossil records date back to about 3500 million years ago. One of the most important cyanobacteria is Spirulina which is also called super food because it has many nutraceuticals values. It is commercially produced in large outdoor ponds under controlled conditions. Potential health benefits of Spirulina are mainly due to its chemical composition, which includes proteins (the highest protein content of any natural food, 55–70 %), carbohydrates, essential amino acids, minerals (especially iron), essential fatty acids, vitamins and pigments. In this respect, three major bioactive components of Spirulina, the protein phycocyanin (a biliprotein pigment), sulfated polysaccharides and gamma linolenic acid seem to play significant roles in imparting improved human body functions. In the present study Spirulina strain shows maximum value of physiological parameters at 14th days of incubation. And also show high antioxidant activity (13.29 μmol Trolox g−1).

Key Words

Spirulina , β-carotene, Physiological parameters and Antioxidant activity.
