Future Food Tech from Triton Algae Innovations

Founded in 2013, Triton Algae Innovations is a San Diego-based startup that uses precision fermentation to manufacture highly nutritious strains of algae. Triton’s green algae is an excellent source of protein, and also provides a complete amino acid profile, as well as being rich in Vitamin A, iron, and omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. It contains significantly more protein than many plant-based proteins currently on the market (such as soy), as well as a superior amino acid content.

Triton is the first company to develop a scalable fermentation strategy for producing non-GMO Chlamydomonas reinhardtii that are rich in heme and other meat-like compounds.
