premium freeze dried microalgae

nourishing the blue economy

Microalgae are notorious for the many different compounds they can produce. They are highly acclaimed for their high levels of poly-unsaturated fatty acids and potent antioxidants. At the same time they are an abundant source of carbohydrates, proteins rich in essential amino acids, vitamins and trace elements. Often, they also possess antibacterial, antiviral and/or immune-stimulatory activity. And what’s more, they can be made to do so with unparalleled productivity and in a sustainable manner. In short, microalgae are the feedstock of the future.


I have never thought it would be possible to replace live microalgae with 100% dried and formulated feed.

what are the biggest advantages of freeze dried microalgae?

reduces culture crashes in production

Algae culture crashes happen, much more often than you would like and every time they come with great consequences. Your rotifers suffer or your shrimp larvae culture collapses.

Why take the risk of losing your production batch? With our Premium freeze dried algae, you can already exclude the possibility of the culture crash being caused by administering poorly cultivated algae.

Proviron Prime freeze dried microalgae are always available … straight from the shelf.  

avoids pathogen contamination risk

On the spot production of algae holds great risk for pathogen contamination. In house algae cultures are a major vehicle for Vibrio and pathogenic ciliates. Using live algae does not allow you to properly check for such contamination prior to feeding.

Our production facilities do not source from natural (salt) surface waters nor are located near them (or other potential (aquaculture) pathogen reservoirs. There are no fish, shrimp, shellfish or other aquatic organisms grown at or in the vicinity of our production facilities.

Proviron algae are further produced under the most stringently controlled conditions and continuously checked for the presence of pathogens (HACCP and FCA certified by SGS (FCA certificate BE 01/1522.GF)).

consist premium nutritional quality

Are you sure your in house algae have the right nutritional profile all the time? Seasonal changes have serious impact on the nutritional quality. Very often growth circumstances at your hatchery are not ideal to reach optimal quality.

Proviron Prime microalgae are grown under optimised circumstances to guarantee a consistently high quality (high PUFA content, lipid profile, …). They are continuously controlled for quality and purity, and only released when all specifications are met. Processing by freeze drying also ensures that the nutritional profile remains unchanged throughout the storage period.
