Meat alternatives

Meat alternatives containing microalgae

Phycom can help you develop meat alternatives containing microalgae. There is growing interest in the use of new protein sources in food, such as insects and microalgae. Algae are a natural and highly efficient source of protein and essential amino acids. Microalgae are also suitable as a flavouring and binding agent in meat alternatives. Phycom microalgae have consistent quality and superior purity.

 

Benefits of microalgae in meat alternatives

  • 100% vegan protein source: one of the most interesting and scalable protein sources for the future.
  • Binder: suitable as a binding agent and can partially replace egg-white.
  • Taste: gives products a pleasant “umami” flavour.
  • Colour: gives a beautiful, natural green colour.
