Abstract

The green alga Scenedesmus acutus was cultivated in clean water on a pilot-plant scale, harvested, drum dried at 120 degree C for 5-8 s, and then fed ad lib. to weanling rats as the sole protein source at levels of 10 or 15% in the diet for 12 wk. The results showed that the drum-dried alga did not have any significant toxicological or histopathological effects when fed at these levels.
