Lemna-Protein

Since 2010, Oxygenesis - led by the above team - has been intensely working on the development of the indoor cultivation method for duckweed. Every step made, leading to further knowledge and functional capacity, was backed by further patent applications. This led to visible further developments.

The spectrum of amino acids of duckweed (Lemnaceae) is complete, particularly with regard to essential amino acids. This applies to all genera, for example, Spirodela polyrhiza, Landoltia punctata, Lemna minor, Lemna Gibba, Wolffiella hyalina and Wolffia microscopica. The respective percentages of amino acids differ only marginally between the individual genera. However, the total percentage of crude protein may vary considerably, even among different varieties of a genus.

Oxygenesis has available a portfolio of plant varieties, particularly with respect to the genus Lemna minor L (the “Henry” series), but also with respect to the genus Spirodela polyrhiza (“Big Mama”) and a species grown from a crossing of Landoltia punctata X Lemna minor L, which was confirmed by the University in Wageningen, Netherlands, in agreement with the Plant Variety Office.

Lemna protein is of extremely high value, and the Oxygenesis cultivation method allows the production of large quantities.

The high value of the Lemna array of protein also permits an economic separation into what is referred to as high end proteins.

Therefore, both the raw material and the isolates of Lemna are suitable for use as high-value food additives in concentrated fodder (authorisation of the DLG [German Agricultural Society] as a feed material) and for use in human nutrition (novel food).
