Microalgae are a promising source of feeds provided by Nature, with several nutritional advantages and potential to feed an ever growing population.
The survival, growth, development, productivity and fertility of animals are a reflection of their health. Feed quality is the most important exogenous factor influencing animal health. Health and Food Safety concerns are putting pressure on better quality feed ingredients, which opens space in this market for microalgae biomass as nutritional supplement, as they posses many unique and interesting biochemical properties when compared to higher plants. Most of the raw materials currently used for animal feed products are higher plants as corn, soybeans, sorghum, oats, and barley. Beside the nutritional improvement that microalgae incorporation in feeds versus higher plants may bring to animals health, they are the only biomass material that allows production with daily harvest all year round. This could bring to the feed market more security of supply on raw materials.
