The Need For Triton's Algae Protein
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.
tRITOn's Nutritious Algae
• Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a single-cell green algae that is distributed worldwide. Additionally, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has served as a model organism, with a flexible suite of synthetic biology tools: making it an ideal host to produce mammalian proteins, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, and hormones. Until recently, Chlamydomonas lacked an economic large scale production process and food safety record. Triton has eliminated the barriers to this host being a truly robust industrial powerhouse
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.
