Flavour and use
Algae powder is particularly well-suited to the purpose of adding colour and flavour to a variety of dishes.

The typical green colour and the texture in the mouth make Algae powder a unique asset in the kitchen.

Origin
These algae are a very powerful source of chlorophyll and contain high concentrations (>60%) of protein, vitamins, trace elements and Omega 3 fatty acids. Algae can form an important and sustainable substitute for animal proteins. It is also claimed that algae help to cleanse the body, provide extra energy and boost the immune system.
