Algenuity’s Chlorella Colours® platform launched at this year’s Vitafoods Europe

15.05.2019

UK algal specialists Algenuity launched its ground-breaking Chlorella Colours platform to the food sector at Vitafoods Europe 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland. The patent-pending Chlorella Colours platform is based on Chlorella vulgaris and is derived from Algenuity’s own proprietary, high-performing microalgal strain. The platform is approved for the European food market and satisfies the needs of the growing vegan sector, offering protein-rich, whole plant cell-based ingredients, which are sustainable, natural, gluten free and non-GM. Improved organoleptic properties make it perfect as an ingredient in food, drink and supplement products.
 

The application of Chlorella vulgaris for food is well-established, but it can be a challenging ingredient to work with because of the strong colour, taste and smell associated with its high chlorophyll content. The Chlorella Colours strains were developed to contain almost no chlorophyll and instead, retain varying levels of natural pigments, such as lutein and other carotenoids, resulting in yellow, lime and white colour varieties with greatly-improved organoleptics. Furthermore, these alternatives are highly productive under heterotrophic growth, overcoming the economic and operational challenges of producing phototrophic microalgae at scale, supporting its use in the food market, and opening up a wealth of additional applications.
 

Come and meet the Algenuity team on stand G189, alongside scale-up partner Allmicroalgae, to find out more about this latest breakthrough in algal technology.
