Decisive for the quality of the algae oil is the right selection of the raw material – i.e. the algae. The microalgae, Schizochytrium sp., forms the basis for our vegan algae oil. This type of algae is a marine microalgae and consists of microscopic single-celled algae. This type of algae is native to mangrove forests on tropical coasts. It feeds purely on organic and plant matter, such as dead leaves. The special thing about this alga is that it forms the two so important marine omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA.
