A Better Source of Oil

Conventional fats and oils have performance limitations and negatively impact our natural resources. We are using fermentation to create a versatile portfolio of fats and oils with exceptional performance properties that help you lead a healthy and sustainable life.


Spotlight™ Foods provides professional chefs, food service operators, and packaged goods companies with versatile and environmentally conscious fats and oils that make foods shine.

Spotlight™ algae oil is an expeller-pressed, premium culinary oil that delivers consistently delicious food, can be used in recipes for the same or less cost than those with conventional and “alternative” ingredients, and has a 47% lower carbon footprint than canola oil.*

*Based on a life cycle assessment (LCA) of carbon emissions of our algae oil, compared to published LCA results for U.S. extracted canola oil.

Both LCAs included the life cycle phases from field to bulk packaging.


With partners, we develop and commercialize structured triglycerides, bioactive oils, and rare fatty acids, enabled by our scalable microalgae fermentation technology platform, for use in human and animal nutrition applications throughout life’s stages.

No great challenge is solved by individuals alone.
It takes a community united behind a shared vision to create long-lasting, impactful change.
