A super-crop with radical potential, algae is the ultimate sustainable source that can provide nutrition for all.
In our effort to create nutrition solutions with our core commitment to sustainability and long term production, we had to rely on a better source. The development of an algae-based technology was our answer.
Qualitas Health has perfected the farming of algae for human consumption. Our scalable cultivation methods mean a focus on farming to develop core nutrients that help all people lead a better life.
Algae is resource-smart
Utilizes unproductive land - not otherwise usable for agriculture.
No fresh water required for cultivation
Phototrophic — uses sunlight to drive photosynthesis
CO as carbon source
Renewable energy powers algae growth
Green microalgae are microscopic single-cell plants, typically found in water systems such as oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams. Algae are the first link in the oceanic food chain and use photosynthesis to convert water and carbon dioxide to nutrient-rich biomass and oxygen in the presence of sunlight. In fact, other marine sources of Omega-3 oil such as fish and krill, do not produce Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, but rather accumulate it from the algae they and their prey consume in their natural environment.
A range of microalgae species are cultivated at large scale around the world and are commercially used in a variety of applications such as aquaculture, cosmetics, and food supplements. Important for human health, algae species are the world's primary producers of oxygen and an important source for nutrients such as Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), proteins, antioxidants and other micronutrients.
