AbstractIn the present study, the chemical and functional composition of Euglena cantabrica was investigated. The extraction of the bioactive compounds was done by using Pressurized Liquid Extraction (PLE) with different temperatures and extraction solvents. After this, different functional and chemical analyses were done with the aim to see the bioactivity of the extracts and also to characterize chlorophylls, carotenoids and carbohydrates. The obtained results gave the best way to do the extraction depending on the desired bioactivity. However, a deeper analysis of the data should be performed with the purpose of getting a better characterization of pigments and carbohydrates. Summing up, E. cantabrica seems to be a good candidate to be used in the industry.
