How We Innovate

Origin AlgaeTM

A Better Algae

To make Thrive® Algae Oil, we start with algae – one of nature’s first foods and an original source of oils and good fats. Unlike algae typically found in the sea, our algae were originally sourced from the sap of a chestnut tree.

We then looked to nature for the best traits from oil producing plants, like safflower and olive. We add these plant traits to our algae to help make an even better oil that’s high in monounsaturated and low in saturated fat.

Our algae are grown in fermenters, just like the kind used for making wine and beer. The algae naturally convert renewable plant sugars to oil in just a few days.

Finally, using the same method as coconut and seed oils, we expeller press the algae to release the oil. The result is an oil with high levels of good fats and low levels of saturated fats that’s recommended by the American Heart Association for all kinds of cooking.”

No waste: the leftover algae can be used for renewable energy and many other uses.

Thrive® Algae Oil is Heart-Check certified by the American Heart Association as a source of good monounsaturated fat.  For additional questions about our product, visit our FAQ page.
