Abstract


A study on the determination of the micronutrient content of spirulina samples was conducted at three farms in Burkina Faso. The highest vitamin levels are from the "Nayalgué" farm with 52.3 ± 9.81 mg / 100 g of β-carotene and 1.67 ± 0.57 mg / 100 g of α-tocopherol. The highest calcium content was obtained at CRSBAN with 4.93 ± 95 mg / 100g. The magnesium content is 2.55 ± 18 mg / g at CRSBAN, 1.72 ± 24 mg / g at the "Nayalgué" farm and 1.30 ± 18 mg / g at the Ouahigouya farm. The iron content is 0.61 ± 83 mg / g at CRSBAN, 0.69 ± 91 mg / g at the "Nayalgué" farm and 0.54 ± 75 mg / g at the Ouahigouya farm. The zinc content is 0.017 ± 1.01 mg / g at CRSBAN, 0.02 ± 3.60 mg / g at the "Nayalgué" farm and 0.01 ± 2.51 mg / g at the Ouahigouya farm. Micronutrients are more numerous on the "Nayalgué" farm.
