Triton is determined to disrupt the unsustainable food ecosystem with solutions that provide better nutrition, better health, and better tasting food.
Triton’s Hardtii 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 superior amino acid content.
Unleashing the potential of algae for sustainable health and nutrition.
Chlamydomonas is the newest Superfood-ingredient and has achieved a “No Questions” letter from the United States Food and Drug Administration as being Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). Chlamydomonas (Hardtii) is a well-studied genus of microalgae in freshwater and soil worldwide, and we have made them novel foods for the first time in human history. Our precision fermented algae are nutritious, great-tasting, affordable, and safe to eat. And like peppers or tomatoes, we have developed different varieties through breeding and selections, using non-GMO technologies. And best of all, Triton has developed a patented process to make them sustainable and affordable.
Triton’s main focus has been on developing the next generation of microalgae-based ingredients using Chlamydomonas. Through years of research and development, Triton has developed Chlamydomonas into a robust alternative protein powerhouse by exploring its natural diversity and creating the world’s first-ever, IP-protected, fermentation scale-up manufacturing process to produce this alga at an industrial scale.
A single fermentation plant on one acre of land can produce from 6000 to 9000 tons of Chlamydomonas, annually, outpacing the production of crops such as soy.
