Description

Handbook of Food and Feed from Microalgae: Production, Application, Regulation, and Sustainability is a comprehensive resource on all aspects of using microalgae in food and feed. This book covers applied processes, including compounds found in microalgae applicable in food and feed, food products developed with microalgae biomass in the composition, the use of microalgae in animal nutrition, and challenges and recent advances. Written by global leading experts on microalgae, the book's sections discuss the fundamentals of food and feed from microalgae, including its biodiversity, biogeography, genomics, nutritional purposes and  compounds found within microalgae like proteins, vitamins and antioxidants. In addition, the book explains the incorporation of microalgae into meat, dairy, beverages and wheat products, as well as in real-world food applications in aquaculture, mollusk, poultry and pet feeding. The last two sections cover challenges and issues such as bioavailability and bio-accessibility and how to address safety, regulatory, market, economics and environment concerns.

Key Features

  • Examines current data behind food and feed production using microalgae-based processes
  • Analyzes and details the use of microalgae across industries and disciplines
  • Addresses and offers solutions to safety, market, environmental and economic issues

Readership

Researchers and practitioners in aquaculture and food science, especially interested in microalgae as a sustainable food and feed ingredient; Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in aquaculture, food science, and nutritional studies (human or animal)
