Abstract

In this essay I decided to talk only about those algae that are the most spread around the world or ones that could become useful in the future for their various characteristics. Of course, these are not all the species of algae that people could and do use in their nutrition. The advantage of algae in nutrition are, besides the fact that it contains a lot of nutritious ingredients, vitamins and minerals, their fast reproduction and preservation of nature around it. In spite all of that, the cultivation of many sorts of algae is not perfected yet, and most of human demand for algae is fulfilled direct from nature. By improving the process of cultivation and considering the ever ongoing process of globalization it is normal to expect that algae could become more popular in human diet in years to come. Also, improved processing and combining with other ingreedients algae could become food for all layers of society, not only for those who insist in eating healthy or for astronauts for example. Although today we know a lot about nutrition worth and benefits of algae there still are some undiscovered things about some ingredients and their affects on people. Probably the future will bring more and more experiments and knowledge about algae. So far we know that some algae could be used in medicine but it could also be harmful as useful. When using algae in nutrition, as much as everything, we need to be careful. Nothing is good for you if you overdo it, the same goes for algae.
