The reason for making a Spirulina Tablet
is to provide a known quantity of Spirulina in a controlled way
that can be used by the body. When making a tablet the bottom
line is Bio availability. Which is the ability of the body to
use the raw ingredients that it provides. If a tablet does not
dissolve or disintegrate the body is unable to use it. So it must
be compressed to the correct pressure, otherwise it cannot be
used by the body efficently.
Evolutionary Health .Org Has a simple objective to make quality
Tablets and maintain that quality, tablet after tablet, day in
and day out.
This takes skill, care and understanding. One of
the most important factors is the quality and uniformity of the
powder; it must be of high quality and flow evenly and consistently,
the tablet presses measure powder volume to achieve the correct
tablet weight, so therefore volume control is critical. Moisture
content, particule size and bulk density are monitored closely.
There are various methods used to make spirulina
tablets. Direct compression is used for 100% Organic Spirulina.
Which means there is nothing else added by way of binders and
fillers. Centrifugal force and the correct number of rotations
on the tableting machine bind the tablets naturally
The method used for non-organic Spirulina tablets
is wet blending with direct compression.
Firstly the powder is mixed with water, then dried
on a fluid bed drier.
A minimal amount of silica is the blended with the raw ingredient.
Then the mixture is processed in a tableting press.
Getting the correct compression is one of the most
important aspects of tableting. The tablet presses must be maintained,
die tables & die sockets are constantly monitored to ensure
excellent surface condition. This is critical to the success of
producing a consistent quality tablet.
Continuous tablet testing is done on the production
floor, for weight, thickness, hardness, friability, disintegration
and dissolution. These tests are carried out on a regular schedule.
A slight variation within the range is expected within a batch
and from batch to batch, maintaining target values is the key
