Algae are nutritionally rich microorganisms and plants, loaded with protein and amino acids. They are enhancing nutrition, and Aquatic Energy is committed to making this happen on a larger scale — from pond to plate.
Algae have been used for years as food additives to add color or ensure the creaminess, smoothness and stability of foods, such as sour cream or peanut butter. In other countries, seaweed and kelp — larger forms of algae — are time-honored foods nourishing millions.
In the U.S. and other countries use is broadening, and today algae is a means of introducing or extending high-quality proteins, fiber or carbohydrates in foods for humans and feed for animals, including fish. Whether it’s part of the main course or an additive in health drinks, algae are packed with heart-healthy unsaturated fats and essential amino acids and no trans fats. Considered by many to be a super food, algae are indispensable for balanced nutrition.
Because Aquatic Energy’s algal products are 99% pure and of the highest quality, they are a rich source of nutrients, ready to enhance a variety of foods or to be used in providing standalone meal replacement.
Add to that algae’s eco-friendly nature — its environmentally respectful use of non-arable land and non-potable water, its consumption of greenhouse gases during growth, and its protein-rich nutrient value without using or endangering other life forms — and algae just may be the perfect food.
