ALGAE USES FOR ORGANIC LIFE

Ertan Ercan, Pınar Yildirim, Mustafa Hacisa, Cansu Metin, Ergi Bahrioğlu

Abstract


The power of the sea has been known since ancient times and marine resources have even benefited mankind when technology was less developed. The use of these resources, both for health and nutritional purposes, is increasingly spreading to other fields today.

Algae produce their own food and have a vital value for life. For this reason, these organic resources have great potential for use in many areas. They are mainly used for medical and food purposes, as fertilizer in agriculture and as a feed source for some animals. Their high levels of protein, vitamins and minerals make these living things valuable as an important source of energy. Containing omega-3 fatty acids, essential for nutrition and development for all living things, provides their usage as food and feed ingredients. In particular, the high amounts of lipid in some microalgae show promise in areas such as biofuels.

This study focuses on the applications of algae based on nutritional and chemical value.


Keywords
