Cultures around the world have been eating sea kelp for centuries, but in some places like America, the concept is quite new. Our next guest in the Hot Spot series is Courtney Boyd Myers, the Co-Founder and CEO of natural food startup Akua.
Her company is known for making delicious and nutritious food products from kelp such as its fan-favorite the Kelp burger with a mission to feed the planet sustainability while restoring the health of oceans.
Unlike a lot of food tech products, the kelp burger is naturally dense with nutrients like Vitamins A, B6, E, K, as well as Zinc, Calcium, Folate, Potassium, & Iron.
