Akua Kelp Burger

Kelp Burger, Anyone?

If these kelp burgers taste as good as they sound, the potential positive environmental and economic impact would be enormous…

This burger doesn’t require land or fresh water to produce: It’s made with kelp
Kelp farms are enormous carbon sinks, so kelp jerky company Akua is looking for ways to get people to eat more seaweed.

“In an effort to lower the carbon footprint of your diet, maybe you’ve swapped out a beef burger for one made from plants. But growing crops like peas and potatoes can still be resource-intensive, requiring lots of land, fresh water, and fertilizer, the abundant use of which is degrading our soil and polluting the water and air. Instead of looking to replace meat with plants, food startup Akua is looking to the ocean with the launch of its kelp burger.”
