San Diego, CA - Triton Algae Innovations, a San Diego-based startup company focused on new food and nutritional products derived from a highly nutritious algae, has announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “has no questions” that Triton’s algae ingredient Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (C. reinhardtii) is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) for its intended uses in food. FDA reached this finding following a lengthy and rigorous evaluation of a comprehensive science dossier prepared by Triton, which was comprised of toxicological safety studies and characterization data. This dossier had been previously reviewed by an independent panel of experts, which also concluded that Triton’s algae is GRAS.
