What is Euglena?
Euglena is a species of microalgae with the features of both plants and animals. It can store energy by means of photosynthesis like plants while it can move around like animals. Euglena was born 500 million years ago in the primitive age. In 2005, euglena Co., Ltd. became the first in the world to succeed in the outdoor mass cultivation of Euglena for food. Euglena contains 59 varieties of nutrients, which is enough for human survival. Euglena also can be used for the anti-aging cosmetics and healthy complexion. In addition, when euglena grows through photosynthesis, it produces oil that can be used as biofuel that is suitable for jet-fuel, which also helps to reduce CO2 emission to the atmosphere.
