TOKYO -- A Japanese ramen restaurant operator will offer noodles made with euglena, single-celled organisms that turn pond water green, billing them as a health food.

The cold dipping noodles were developed in cooperation with Tokyo-based bioventure Euglena, which also has cosmetics and biofuel businesses based on the microbe.
