Algae are an excellent source of protein with essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and trace elements. They contain high amounts of simple and complex carbohydrates which provide the body with a source of additional fuel. Owing to its above properties, algae are being widely used in nutraceuticals sector. It is estimated that algae based nutraceuticals market will reach nearly US$ 2.5 billion by 2018.

The growing use of algae biomass for nutraceutical purposes is expected to provide an attractive revenue stream for algae producers. While nutraceutical content in the baseline algae strain is very small, current market values for these products are extremely high.
