Authentic, high-quality noodles enriched with algae
Authentic noodles enriched with algae offer outstanding nutritional value, texture and taste.
Algae are receiving more and more attention from health-conscious consumers, scientists and food companies. Rich in minerals like iron, calcium and magnesium, they are a sustainable source of high-quality protein. Van der Moolen Food Group has developed specialty noodles, containing 5-10% algae, and with outstanding taste and texture. The noodles are rich in unsaturated fatty acids and fibers, and a source of proteins. They are also rich in calcium, magnesium and beta-carotene, and a source of iron.
The noodles are made from a dough consisting of flour, water and algae powder from Chlorella vulgaris – a type of algae of which the taste does not predominate. The dough undergoes an authentic and unique, rolling process, which involves several folds between each rolling – much like puff-pastry. This results in an airy dough, and – after drying – in noodle strings which have extraordinary bite and easily pick up flavors.
