Microalgae production

Worldwide there are about 35,000 species of algae known. Of these, 20-30 are used for industrial production. Microalgae have been selectively bred since the 1950s. Mostly in the US and China. Algae products are already present in 70% of all food supplements.

SWISSALG Focuses on the production of astaxanthin, which is considered to be one of the strongest natural antioxidants in our foods.
Astaxanthin is extracted from the microalga hematococcus pluvialis.

The life cycle of this alga is characterized by a growth or green phase, followed by a maturity or red phase.
