The nutritional quality of the flour of the micro-algae Scenedesmus acutus produced in a semi-industrial pilot plant at Sausal, Peru has been tested. The protein content varies between 47.4% and 66.6%. The PER was 2.63 = 0.15 (Casein 3.00 = 0.11), true digestibility 83.4 (Casein 92.4) and BV 60.9 (Casein 73.4). The protein quality did not increase by amino acid supplementation. The 12-week feeding test with micro-algae led to no abnormalities of the weight development, blood parameters, weights… CONTINUE READING
