A Bavarian brewer in Bavaria developed a non-alcoholic sports beer and began selling to athletes.
Spirulina Extract( also named: Phycocyanin, Spirulina Blue, Blue Spirulina, Algae Blue ) is a natural blue protein, it is 100% soluble in water, but insoluble in alcohol.
So, Spirulina Extract is very suitable for non-alcoholic beers.
Erdinger, a German brewery, is putting a new twist on non-alcoholic beer, promoting its alcohol-free beverage as a sports drink.
Unlike the sports drink Gatorade, this ERDINGER Alkoholfrei non-alcoholic beer has a rich foam and its color is also different from traditional sports drinks and it is golden.
Known beers colours: yellow, golden, green and blue.
The green beer and blue beer is made from normal beer by adding the blue Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin.
It is reported that in the Biathlon World Cup held in northern Maine, many top athletes from Europe drink this beverage in a large beer mug.
It is understood that the obvious difference between general sports beer and ordinary beer is: ordinary people can drink water to replenish water, athletes lose a lot of nutrients and trace elements in their bodies in addition to water loss, so sports beer needs to add nutrients and elements according to athletes situation. Some breweries are trying to add the spirulina extract Phycocyanin in sports beers. You can drink sports beer to restore your strength after sports, or apply to people who have lost their nutrients after finishing sports.
The brewer advertises that it is an isotonic drink (equal to body fluid osmotic pressure) and is rich in vitamins, no additives, and has the natural ability to regenerate athletes. In other words, it doesn't contain alcohol like beer, and it doesn't contain irritants like other energy drinks.
As a new functional food, Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin is getting more and more attention from beer developers.
Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin is a natural edible blue food, and called ‘food diamond’ by food experts. Not only bright blue colour, but in itself is a nutritious protein, amino acid composition range, high content of essential amino acids.
