Abstract

Algae are the first eukaryotic organisms that manage to perform photosynthesis. They are considered to be the biggest oxygen producers on the planet. From micrometar plankton to more than 50 metars long seaweed, they occupy all the environmental habitants. They have a big application and benefit in food, industrial, technological and cosmetic purposes. By shape they resemble to plants, but without leaves, roots and flowers. This work more closely explains the methods of algae cultivation, their meaning and benefits in the food sector. Their essential nutrients have shown to be a very good medicine, food and energy supplement, especially when the need for new and better potential energy has become necessary. The most known for cultivation in food sector are Chlorella and Spirulina.
