Blue fields for a green future – seaweed as a source of sustainable foods (BLUEGREEN). This Formas project explores the potential of the fast-growing seaweed species Ulva fenestrata as a new ecologically cultivated Swedish protein. BLUEGREEN will look into a combination of sea-based (non-fertilized) and short-term, post-harvest tank cultivation of Ulva. BLUEGREEN will investigate different post-harvest process methods to achieve biomass stability, but also to increase protein digestibility and to maintain or improve the sensorial profile.
