Our portfolio of Whole Algae Ingredients (AlgaVia® Lipid-Rich Whole Algae and AlgaVia® Protein-Rich Whole Algae) are made from a native algae strain, which means the algae has not been engineered in any way. The strain was discovered in freshwater in the Netherlands, is yellow in color and naturally converts sugars into oils and proteins. We use a standard industrial fermentation process to grow the algae, and after fermentation the ingredients are washed, dried and milled into a soft, fine powder. The production of these products does not use genetic engineering and the final product does not contain genetically modified organisms.

Understanding Our Fermentation Process

We take simple sugars, add them to our algae in steel fermentation tanks and let the innovation give way to delicious food without compromise.

  • Step One

    Simple Sugar Inputs

    Sugar and other nutrients are fed to the specific algae that will produce the whole food ingredient your product requires. Sugar sources can include:

    Sugar Beets
    Sugar Cane
  • Step Two

    Standard Fermentation

    Offering control, purity and consistency.

    algae cell filled with oil
    Native algae convert sugars into AlgaVia® Lipid Powders and Proteins.
  • Step Three

    Familiar Ingredients

    Whole food ingredients can be used in a variety of healthier, high performing applications.

    Lipid Powder
    Other Ingredients

    For AlgaVia® Lipid Powders and Proteins, whole, native algae cells are dried and milled.

The Result?

Better products from a new, pure ingredient source.
