So, what is algal protein?

Algal protein is a high-quality plant-based protein source derived from various types of algae, including spirulina and chlorella. It is rich in essential amino acids, making it a complete protein, and is also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Algal protein is an excellent alternative to animal-based proteins, particularly for vegans and vegetarians. It is also sustainably produced with minimal environmental impact, as it requires less land, water, and energy compared to traditional protein sources. With its numerous health benefits and eco-friendly characteristics, algal protein is becoming increasingly popular in the food industry as a versatile ingredient in various products, from nutrition bars to dairy alternatives.
