Groundbreaking micro-algae formula eliminates allergies while providing complete nutrition
Sophie’s Bionutrients, a Singapore-based next-generation sustainable urban food production technology company, announced that it had developed the world’s first-ever pure micro-algae-based milk replacement that promises to eliminate allergies making it safe for consumption for people with lactose-intolerance.
The milk alternative dairy replacement was made with Sophie’s Bionutrients signature micro-algae protein flour with the same essential amino acids as micro-algae. The flour is then homogenised with water to create the dairy-free milk alternative.
The dairy alternative is comparable in nutritional value to cow’s milk. However, the protein value can be elevated by up to 50 percent by altering ratios in the water-soluble micro-algae flour. The sample alt-milk produced has a similar texture to nut-based milk. However, it can be further refined to mimic the creamy texture of dairy.
Sophie’s Bionutrients is the world’s first food tech company to use microalgae and patent-pending technologies to develop 100 % plant-based and sustainable alternative protein with the core vision that micro-algae is the superfood of the future.
“We believe in harnessing the power of nature to build a sustainable, greener future through environment-friendly alternate food solutions. We believe that micro-algae is the best place to help us achieve this. It is the superfood of the future. Through further refinement with food and beverage producing partners developments like this one, the world’s first allergen-free micro-algae milk, we believe we can transform the way we live, produce and consume food for the better,” said Eugene Wang, Co-Founder & CEO of Sophie’s Bionutrients.
