Sustainable Solutions from Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals
The nutritional benefits of algae have been recognized for centuries. They can be a prolific source of oil, protein, fiber and micronutrients. Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals' proprietary algae was selected from nature, for its ability to efficiently convert nutrients, such as natural sugars, into energy for rapid growth and accumulation of healthy lipids and proteins. Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals grows and processes microalgae in typical cGMP fermentation plants, where quality and consistency can be monitored and ensured.
Using proprietary, controlled cultivation and production methods, Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals can tap into the purity of nature’s creation to produce an entirely new, sustainable, microalgae-based food ingredient rich in protein and nutrients. This unique ingredient offers food developers a healthy new solution for reducing sources of fat including eggs, milk or high-fat oils while maintaining exceptional quality and taste in finished food applications.
Our patented method, in general terms, introduces a pure strain of microalgae into a sterile, light-free stainless steel fermentation tank, not unlike those used in wine production, to convert photosynthetic plant sugars into oil and protein – sustainably grown, without chemicals and with the highest degree of sterility.
We understand the importance of quality, consistency and reliability in every lot of ingredient we produce. Food manufacturers can rest assured that our Almagine™ ingredients are derived from a pure, consistent and sustainable hydrocrop, eliminating concern over contamination, irregularity or depleting resources. They are a truly reliable ingredient source that provides security and stability for our customers’ long-term planning.
