Microalgae as Haematococcus pluvialis produce lipid metabolites of great interest for different industries as the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, among other. Currently, one of the main limitations for the massive commercialization of these metabolites are the low yields between cell growth and the production of lipid metabolites. Thus, a better understanding of culture parameters that allow to get a balance between both variables is needed. Herein we evaluated the effect of Bold’s Basal Medium (BBM) on the production of lipid metabolites of high biotechnological value in Haematococcus pluvialis UTEX 2505. A factorial experimental design of 32 was used whereby the concentrations of the nitrogen and phosphorus source (0.2, 0.6 and 1.0 g / l) in the BBM culture medium were varied. Cell growth was measured, showed the highest concentration (1.148±0.842 g/l) for the treatment with the highest nitrate and phosphate content (a concentration of 1.0 g/l for both). The Astaxanthin content showed a maximum value of 76.22 ± 3.02 µg/mL for treatment with low nitrate (0.2 g/L) and medium phosphate (0.6 g/L). The antioxidant capacity was determined by the ORAC method, achieving superior values to those found in the literature for compounds such as vitamins E and C. The results suggested that low concentrations of nutrients, nitrate and phosphate have a positive effect on the concentration of lipid metabolites and affirm that the biomass of H. pluvialis UTEX 2505 is an excellent source of antioxidants and rich in essential fatty acids for human nutrition.
