Algae has been eaten in various forms for thousands of years. The technical term Aphanizomenon (genus) and Flos-Aquae (species) translate literally in Greek to: ‘invisible living flower of water’.

Algae is one of the most nutrient-rich foods found on the planet, containing glyco-proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids and biologically active enzymes. It is also packed with beta-carotene, chlorophyll, fatty acids, neuropeptide precursors, trace minerals, pigments and other essential growth factors. It contains all eight essential amino acids and both semi-essential amino acids, and is a concentrated source of arginine, known to build and tone muscle tissue. Most importantly, the essential amino acid profile of algae is virtually identical to that required by the human body. Due to the algae’s nutritious soft cell wall, these nutrients are readily available.

Algae capitalise on the direct energy of the sun, and are highly efficient photo synthesizers. It utilises light energy from the sun (greater than 10% conversion efficiency), carbon dioxide from the air, and hydrogen from the water to synthesise its bio-chemicals.
