Health benefits of algae

Algae is a sustainable crop with potential health benefits including protein, Omega 3 and antioxidants, and AEB is focused on unlocking this potential to supply the high-growth nutraceutical market.

This has prompted scientists to explore the nutraceutical potential of one of the world’s most promising sustainable crops.

Algae-based proteins and peptides has also emerged as a positive alternative to dairy-based proteins and peptides.

The nutraceutical market is currently experiencing an uptake in algae-based food and dietary supplements, as well as value-added processed foods and non-food supplements such as tablets, soft gels and capsules.

Furthermore, the use of algae in antibiotics and pharmalogically-active compounds continues to rise.

Spirulina, which is cultivated by AEB within its state-of-the-art facility in Atlanta, is a natural algal powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. It is regarded as the most powerful of the natural protein sources.
