Aonori and Sea Lettuce
Delicious, nutritious and sustainable fresh & dried sea vegetables for a healthy world
Aonori and Sea Lettuce:
The New Superfood
Algal Tech's mission is to make highly nutritious, fresh & dried sea vegetables with mild umami taste, available to mass markets as a key new ingredient.
Algal Tech has developed a disruptive technology that enables the sustainable production at scale of two high-value fresh sea vegetables: Aonori and Sea Lettuce.
Algal Tech has developed an IP portfolio of patents and trade secrets that protects us from competitors, allowing us to bring these products to mass markets at a very competitive price point while still maintaining high returns to our investors.
Algal Tech’s team is composed of highly experienced individuals in science, nutrition, operations, marketing and sales.
Over 20 years of multidisciplinary technology development
DOES NOT pollute the environment. It conserves fresh water and fertile agricultural land.
DOES NOT use genetically modified organisms (GMOs), additives for processing, preservatives, dyes, flavorings or monosodium glutamate.
DOES NOT use pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or any other chemical that may alter the quality of the product.
Suggestions for Use
Japanese for "Pleasant Savory Taste"
Umami is one of the five basic tastes, along with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness, it enhances the palatability of a wide variety of foods.
Many common foods are rich in umami taste, because it is present naturally in fish, seafood, sea vegetables, meats, vegetables, cheeses and pastas.
People taste umami through receptors specific to glutamate and it is usually associated with food that is healthy or nutritious. Our FRESH sea vegetables, Aonori and Sea Lettuce, have a MILD Umami taste and can be used as an ingredient in any dish.
Sea vegetables provide multiple direct benefits to health helping to fight, control and prevent food-related diseases such as obesity, diabetes, etc. when included as a fresh protein and fiber-rich vegetable in salads, pizzas, soups, seafood dishes, pasta, and as an ingredient in snacks, bars, tortillas and food supplements.
How Algal Tech's
Aonori and Sea Lettuce are grown
Algal Tech’s Aonori and Sea Lettuce are grown using a unique patent pending aeroponic system. Aeroponics is the process of growing plants (in this case marine) in an air environment, without the use of soil, with a direct supply of essential nutrients using a fertilized (sea) water spray, which also provides them with the CO2 they need to grow.
Through a scientific understanding of the physiology of algae and extensive scientific and engineering collaboration, Algal Tech has gained significant advantages over the competition, especially compared to the harvest of wild seaweeds and aquatic cultures (algae floating in water at sea or in inland ponds). These advantages are:
Greater control of the nutritional properties of the algae.
Greater consistency in quality and nutritional composition.
Reliable production volumes during the culture period (10 months / yr).
Growing in greenhouses prevents algae contamination by insects, bacteria and dust.
Grown using pristine cold water from the Pacific Ocean.
Meets international sustainability standards.
Aonori & Sea Lettuce:
Healthy and Sustainable
Problem 1: Sustainable Food Production
In a world of over 7 billion people where nutritional resources are constrained, sustainability equals survival:
Demand for food is growing
Land resources are degrading
Agricultural lands are growing increasingly scarce and agricultural irrigation is putting unprecedented pressure on renewable water resources.
Problem 2: Diseases Caused by Inadequate Diets
An increase in food-related diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and nutritional deficiencies, have resulted from a lower than recommended intake of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Death rates from chronic non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, have increased significantly.
High-Impact Solution: Aonori and Sea Lettuce
LOWEST COST production and harvesting process than other similar technologies.
BETTER CONTROL of nutritional density and quality & consistency of the marine vegetable.
IP PORTFOLIO of patents and trade secrets that eliminates Fungal and Bacterial contamination.
This way, Aonori and Sea Lettuce are effectively contributing to solve both the global food production sustainability problem and the health problems generated by inadequate diets.
