Yemoja, Ltd., is now offering Ounje, a microalgae formulation that adds authentic ‘bloody’ juiciness to plant-based burgers and steaks. The ingredient uses no artificial colors and provides the sensory characteristics of juicy meat. The algae is grown indoor and exhibits potential to act as a clean and 100% plant-sourced heme substitute for plant-based meat. It also carries a 20-30% protein load with a complete essential amino acids profile.
