Cabbage, potatoes and carrots – a sustainable diet involves eating vegetables, right? There’s more to it than that.
An American female-led start-up is bucking the trend and making food from seaweed, working with farms run exclusively by women.
Seaweed, also known as kelp, is climate-positive as it sequesters carbon dioxide. It is also a ‘zero-input’ food, meaning it needs only the sea to grow.
After cutting its teeth on a line of jerk snacks, the company is now gearing up to launch its kelp burger. With additional ingredients such as mushrooms, tomatoes and pea proteins, their product is bursting with vitamins and minerals.
Containing zero saturated fats, it is also healthier than other meat alternatives. Smell fishy?
Rather a kelping hand for sustainability.
