Essen'Ciel Spirulina: a precious ally of your vitality!

Nestled in its green setting and overlooking the Serre-Ponçon Lake, the Garden of Essen’Ciel is a very unique farm. Under a greenhouse of more than 600m², we produce a food micro-alga with many nutritional virtues: spirulina.
Consumed for a very long time, in other latitudes, it is today more and more present in our plates.
Low in calories and fat, Essen’Ciel Spirulina naturally contains a large number of nutrients necessary for the balance of our body.

Spirulina is suitable pour all of those who desire to:
Eat healthy
Regain energy and vitality
Strengthen their immune system
Optimize their sport capacities

It can be consumed by everyone from infants to elderlies.

Come and meet its history, culture and transformation through a free guided tour, led by Yannick, the spirulina maker. A tasting will allow you to understand this new food, often called "superfood"!
