At Vitafoods Expo, Allmicroalgae will showcase its new organic ‘spirulina’ range. Derived from the microalgae Arthrospira platensis, the sun- or spray-dried ingredients are available in paste, powder, nibs and flakes format. They are rich in protein and dietary fibre, and contain all the essential amino acids, as well as antioxidant phycocyanin, iron, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids. The combination of valuable plant proteins, iron and vitamin B12 make spirulina-based ingredients a perfect fit for vegan food and supplement concepts, as they support a balanced, plant-based diet. Thanks to their mild flavour, they can easily be incorporated into a wide variety of food and drink, such as baked goods, pasta, juices, smoothies and fermented beverages. The nibs are a perfect topping for ice creams, yogurts, salads and cheeses. Besides this novelty in its portfolio, visitors to the booth can learn about the complete range of microalgae-based ingredients, including the organic autotrophic Chlorella vulgaris and the organoleptically improved heterotrophic Smooth, Yellow and White Chlorella vulgaris, all of which combine sustainable processing with a full nutritional load. With the alternative protein market sky-rocketing, Allmicroalgae has been continuously expanding its capacities and is equipped to achieve an annual potential output of around 100 tons of dried biomass. Its production system covers more than 2,000 cubic metres, 1,300 of which house photobioreactors and fermenters. A further 700 cubic metres of covered raceways were also recently installed for the production of spirulina.
Having become European leaders in Organic Chlorella vulgaris production, visitors to the Allmicroalgae booth (J291) can discover more about their complete range of microalgae-based ingredients all of which combine sustainable processing with a full nutritional load. Besides organic Chlorella,the portfolio covers the innovative light-coloured chlorella (White, Smooth and Yellow Chlorella vulgaris), with improved organoleptic profile. These ingredients are available as paste and powder. The company also offers capsules and tablets and in this field a real USP: By reverting to organic carriers and excipients, 100% organic products can come to life when using Organic Chlorella vulgaris.
All the ingredients are classified as food by EFSA and FDA, and are produced in line with Halal, Kosher and GMP requirements. Furthermore, they are free from gluten, lactose, nuts, additives, soy and GMO, perchlorates and pathogenic flora such as Bacillus cereus
, and processed without the use of fertilisers, pesticides and irradiation.
