Economical value of macro algae compared to soya bean meal
But the question is whether should we as consumers start weaning of soya bean meal as the base protein source for our food system? As prices of soya in the market currently is at such affordable price. Our recent investigation maybe soya could be substituted with macro algae as soya bean meal price could average out at 397.51 USD per tonne, while tropical macro algae (Spinosium) has an average market price for 350USD per tonne. So the economical question of raw material price should be answered on which might be a better choice.
