The human body requires certain basic nutritional components to survive. These include macronutrients like protein, carbohydrates and fat, and micronutrients, specifically vitamins and minerals.
In addition, we may need additional nutrients, including fiber, probiotics and antioxidants, to optimize our health. For the most part we get these nutritious components from food.
But as the population of the world grows, providing optimal nutrition has become an ever-greater challenge. Arable farm land is disappearing as urban areas expand. And even where land is available it is often over-farmed and lacking the nutrients needed to effectively grow the necessary crops. Algae is an alternative, vast and diverse resource for all of the nutritional components required not only to survive but thrive. At TrueAlgaeTM we are developing products created from the microalgae we grow to capitalize on this sustainable, fast growing and reproducible source of both macro and micronutrients. The opportunities include:
- Whole algae powder
- Algal protein
These products can be used in dietary supplements, foods and beverages to fill the growing nutritional gaps. While currently under development, TrueAlgae is open to partnerships or customizing our output to meet your needs. Please contact us to discuss how we can collaborate.
