The benefits of kelp

1
VITAMINS AND MINERALS

Kelp, like kale and other leafy vegetables, is low in calories and rich in essential vitamins and minerals. Kelp is specifically high in: Vitamin A and K, as well as minerals including Iodine, Iron, Folate, Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc.

2
ANTIOXIDANTS

Kelp is high in antioxidants, including carotenoids and flavonoids, which can help fight against disease-causing free radicals and combat oxidative stress that may help protect cardiovascular health and prevent cancer.

3
IODINE

Kelp is especially rich in iodine, which plays an important role in thyroid regulation and can help boost the body’s metabolism.

In 2021, AKUA sold 120,000+ Kelp Burgers. If every customer who chose a Kelp Burger did not eat a meat burger, together we helped to avoid the additional creation of 660 tons of carbon and removed 300 tons of carbon from our oceans!*

*(Numbers are based on 5kg C02 produced per burger x 120,000)

YOUR NO-CO2 GO-TO

Animal agriculture, uses β…“ of our planet's fresh water, β…“ of our dry land, and is the 2nd largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

Ocean-farmed kelp is a β€œzero-input food” source that requires no fresh water, dry land, fertilizer, or feed to grow and harvest.

Since launch AKUA has used 80,000 pounds of regeneratively ocean farmed kelp responsible for removing 4,000 pounds (2 tons) of carbon from our oceans.

Why is it called regenerative ocean farming?

Whereas sustainable agriculture seeks to maintain (sustain) the systems it impacts, regenerative agriculture practices such as ocean farming product positive system impacts by restoring and healing systems (in this case, our oceans!)

As a result of our ocean farms, farmers have measured increased oxygen levels, decreased carbon and nitrogen levels, species of marine life returning to the areas that haven’t been seen in decades, and even the shellfish are reporting thicker, healthier shells.
