Microalgae form the basis of the food chain in both fresh and salt water. They can be divided into types with chlorophyll (green algae), carotene (brown algae) and phycobilin (blue algae). They contain a lot of protein, fiber, iron, vitamins (including B12), omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals (including iron, potassium, phosphorus, calcium). They are classified as superfoods or novel foods.
High Fibe represents an international company that has conditioned the cultivation conditions of some species. This creates unique, allergen-free and high-quality microalgae that are suitable as a nutritious ingredient in food. They can also be used as a salty seasoning, green coloring, emulsification and/or salt replacement.
