Duplaco cultivates Chlorella Sorokiniana microalgae. The Chlorella microalgae which we cultivate in our own factory can be used, among other things, as a functional ingredient. Algae are very good supplements for heathy food products. We all find it very normal to eat spinach, but not algae. Even though they are real power foods!? Did you know that Chlorella contains over 40 different vitamins, minerals and amino acids?

We can supply fresh, tasty Chorella due to our unique cultivation process which is very suitable for the food industry. Our powdered microalgae have as a delicious, mild flavour. Our Chlorella is, among other things suitable for processing in such products as smoothies, algae burgers or pasta, but can also be consumed in its natural form or served as a condiment. Both the fresh and the powdered algae can be applied as a functional ingredient. Irrespective of the product you apply it to as a producer, our Chlorella microalgae will contribute towards a balanced meal.
