A new project was born! After providing access to medical care, we’ve focused on the fight against malnutrition in Madagascar. Climate conditions can favour the development of food supplements very rich in proteins, vitamins, mineral salts and trace elements: Nature offers an interesting panoply of plants or algae to meet the needs of populations, such as Moringa Olea fera (for its seeds and leaves), Chlorella (an alga) and Spirulina (a microalga, or cyanobacterium).
Surrounded by the sea with pollution-free groundwater, the land and plants are still free of pesticides and synthetic manure. Therefore, it was ideal to choose and develop a complementary food essential to fight against child malnutrition: Spirulina was chosen.
After an assessment, it turns out that this microalgae is impressive by its richness in proteins (65%), Iron (80 mg/100g), 8 essential amino acids and fatty acids (linolenic, Omega 6 and Alpha-linolenic, Omega 3), its provitamin A (β-carotene) and its high content in mineral salts and trace elements are comparable to those found in milk.
And the icing on the cake is phycocyanin, an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory that strengthens the immune system.
Finally, the culture of Spirulina requires very little space, water requirements are low: 4 times less than Soya, 5 times less than corn and 40 times less than beef farming.
