Triton's healthy and nutritious green algae - which is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for human consumption - is a sustainable and affordable source of alternative protein to help meet increasing domestic and global demand. By the year 2050 it is estimated that the number of people who will be deficient for protein will drastically increase. The above map shows the millions of people in each country will need to seek out an alternative protein source. Triton is providing a solution for this global protein shortage through its development of novel green algae products. Learn more.

 

Total PRotein, Amino Acids, essential Oils, vitamins and minerals

Triton's algae is a great source of protein and more importantly essential amino acids. When compared to a traditional source of protein, soy bean, Triton's algae is superior and contains significantly more total protein, and essential amino acids such as lysine, methionine and tryptophan. Additionally, Triton's algae is loaded with omega oils, beta-carotene (Vitamin A), iron and calcium to supplement a healthy diet.

This same GRAS algae is also a demonstrated and proprietary expression platform for the safe production of multiple colostrum proteins, which are essential nutritional compounds that occur naturally in the breast milk of all mammals. As it currently is sold, infant formula is lacking many of these proteins, which are known to improve infant health, cognition and growth. Triton has developed a process to produce these highly sought after proteins, such as osteopontin, which is currently Triton's lead product in development. Learn more. 

 

TRITON PROCESS OVERVIEW  

1. Select Protein

 High value proteins are selected and their genes designed to maximize their potential for production in Triton's host algae.

2. Enable Algae

 Once genes are designed, Triton enables our proprietary strain of algae to produce the desired gene of interest.
