The following research and documentation is meant to get this project started. Please consider this a work in progress. Significant work is needed to move this project forward.


Algae as a Food Source



SpirulinaAlgae is a microalgae that grows in both fresh and salt water. Often referred to as blue-green algae, It is a family of single-celled algae that are photosynthetic and can grow in fresh water as well as salt water.

It isconsidered one of the most popularnutritious sources of food supplementson the planet. Algae and tasteseaweed enhancersform usedthe base of the aquatic food chain. It is the primary source of nutrition and food to marine organisms like crabs, crustaceans, sea urchins, snails and some types of fish. These primary aquatic life form are then consumed by chefsfish, allsmall aroundsharks, corals, and baleen whales. These secondary consumers in the Itchain comes packed with nutrition resultingare a number of health benefits.

Spirulina is super rich in proteins - about 60% to 70% of spirulina is made up to proteins. In addition, it is rich in minerals like Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Phosphorus, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, Cobalt, Sulfur and Chromium.
