The FS4EU welcomes the project ProFuture– Microalgae protein ingredients for the food and feed of the future.
ProFuture is a European-funded Horizon 2020 research project aiming to scale up microalgae production and prepare the market uptake of microalgae proteins as ingredients for innovative and sustainable food and feed products.
Microalgae are rich sources of energy, high-quality protein, healthy fats and health promoting compounds. The nutritional value of algae varies according to the species and their growing conditions, which can be tuned in order to obtain an optimal composition of nutrients in a more sustainable way.
Nonetheless, commercialised species present as nutritious ingredients that can be produced in a more sustainable way.
FoodSafety4EU has signed a cooperation agreement with PROFUTURE to promote dissemination activities, such as supporting in Socia Media through re-tweet or like, and knowledge exchange, also participating to consultations or Projects meeting and events
