Algae has a clean portfolio of nutrients and is exactly what the human body needs. SuSeWi preserves the nutritional integrity of algae with a single-step separation process. People and animals alike have been test subjects.
Algae is like a food portfolio. Inside of one algae can be betacarotene, amino acids, lipids, oils, Omega-3s, Omega-6s, and protein. Right? So there's all of these things within one single algae. So we grow this algae and we can either use it whole as an ingredient, and we can use it for example as a substitute for all fishmeal. We can feed fish. In fact, we have done it. We've finished the trials at the University of Plymouth, where they grew salmon and they grew trout using our algae instead of fishmeal and the algae, I mean, sorry, the salmon and the trout grew better on our algae than they did on the fishmeal. They grew faster, there was less gut inflammation, there was better feed conversion ratio, so it was a really, really good ingredient for a fish.
Similarly with humans, actually, there's less gut inflammation. It's a very, very healthy protein. So if you take something like a soy protein, soy will go through 21 processes before you get the protein, including two which involve poisons which they then have to wash out. So soy protein is really not very healthy for you. And algae goes through one separation step, completely natural, completely organic, and so it's a very, very clean source of protein for humans. And so that's the first use you can use. That's the secondary use, actually. So the first is as a whole biomass, you can feed it to people. We eat it all the time. And to animals, fish, pets.
The second thing that you can do with it is you can extract proteins. You could also extract the betacarotenes, which are very healthy, obviously. And some of the astaxanthins which are preservatives, natural preservatives ... they put them in infant formula and the like ... and the oils. So we can find the EPA and DHA, which is very healthy for brain development, and a variety of other things as well.
