    Experts say algae is the food of the future. Here's why.

    IWi's strain of algae takes what would otherwise be wasted -- saltwater, desert land and CO2 -- and turns it into something special. Made up of 40% protein, it can produce about seven times the amount of protein as soybeans on the same amount of land. The plant also releases oxygen into the air. (About 50% of the world's oxygen comes from algae).
