Spirulina is a blue-green alga belonging to Oscillateriaceae family that typically grows in freshwater lakes, natural springs, and saltwater in subtropical and tropical climates. This blue-green alga is packed with nutrients. It has the outer layer made up of polysaccharide which is water-soluble known as extracellular polysaccharides (EPS), which possess various biological activities such as antitumor, antiviral, antioxidant and anticoagulant activity. Extraction of polysaccharides from Spirulina has been carried out by three different methods viz., hot water extraction, precipitation using ice-cold ethanol and combination of three different solvents methanol: ethanol: chloroform (2:2:2). Exopolysaccharide production was optimized by using Fractional Factorial Design.
