Dairy and Allergy Free Milk Made from Micro-algae Retains Nutritional Properties


Sophie's Bionutrients has 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.

At the heart of all Sophie Bionutrient's products is their natural, neutral colour micro-algae flour made from their proprietary strain of microalgae that can be harvested in just three days.

Prepared in-house in a protected environment, Sophie's micro-algae has a whole-wheat flour colour that can take on unlimited forms, textures or colours. Thus, from burger patties to alt milk, Sophie's Bionutrients micro-algae flour can be used to develop almost any food.

Furthermore, the micro-algae is self-sustaining and can be fed food waste such as spent grains, okara and molasses during the fermentation process - creating a sustainable, circular production method. Nurturing the micro-algae in a protected environment also allows for output ten times higher than conventional sunshine pond operations, reducing the cultivation costs usually associated with micro-algae farming.
