Algaia - Creating value from the sea

Algaia™ offers sustainably-produced, natural, algae-based extracts, and related services and solutions to the agro-nutrition, personal care and nutraceutical Industries.

A palette of texturising options and R&D services

Our product portfolio comprises alginates (brown seaweed extracts) and alginate-based solutions commercialised under their well-established tradenames Satialgine® and Algogel®. We also market in Europe Carrageenans (red seaweed extracts), manufactured in Chile by our strategic partner Gelymar™. A wide range of customised solutions and speciality seaweed extracts are also developed together with our customers by our application experts.

The Algaia Service division also offers an integrated and comprehensive set of R&D services including biomass and by-products valorisation, biochemical analyses, bioactivity measurement, identification of new bioactives and process improvement.

Extra creaminess for dairy products

Algaia experts have designed many texturising solutions to accommodate dairy manufacturers' processing requirements (temperature pH, shear, etc).

Of course, we also take your storage conditions into consideration and select the best stabilising solution from -18°C up to ambient temperature. Algaia™ can assist you to stabilise your product and develop the creamy texture consumers love, while developing low fat or sodium-free dairy recipes for better nutritional profiles as well as reduced production costs.

Cost under control for meat and prepared foods processors

Algaia offers customised solutions for a wide range of processed meat applications, from cooked meat to fresh products. We will help you speed up brine homogenisation and improve the sliceability of cooked meats. We also assist you to increase your bottom line by reducing losses and improving meat juiciness for a greater cooking yield. Thanks to our solutions, meat eaters will appreciate to bite into nicely textured sausages or nuggets, even after thawing them.

Innovative packaging, small portion sizes and variable storage conditions will be taken into account without damaging product appearance or reducing shelf life. Algaia™ can help you keep a high gel even at room temperature, provide solutions for vegetable casings or maintain creaminess in a re-heatable pasta dish.

Indulgent bakery creams, glazing, fruit and vegetable-based products

With its wide scope of texturising options, Algaia allows you to make great toppings, and innovate with algae-based texturising solutions for fruit preparations, reformed fruit or vegetable, bakery creams or olive stuffings.

Innovations to suit vegan, vegetarian, organic and free-from diets

Looking for organic, lactose-free, gluten-free or plant-based/vegan options to appeal to healthy lifestyle consumers? Algaia will help you offer product alternatives to appeal to vegetarian or organic lovers without compromising on texture. You will be able to create awesome mouthfeel in non-dairy products, retain juiciness in meat substitutes, increase yield, give body to soups and sauces, and stabilise juice drinks and dressings. In addition, Algaia innovates with edible films suitable for caviar alternative, cheese coating, orally dissolving strips or innovative algae-based packaging.
