AKUA creates foods that can feed the planet sustainably while reversing climate change, and restoring health to our world's oceans. All of our products are made from ocean-farmed kelp, which is one of the most healing and healthy forms of food on the planet. And we’re in the business of making seaweeds - or, as we like to say - seagreens - taste delicious.
AKUA's Supply Chain
Kelp farming is a zero-input crop that requires no fresh water, no fertilizer, no feed, and no arid land to grow. Kelp also filters carbon and nitrogen from the water, and creates new jobs for our coastal communities. We source our seagreens from a network of regenerative ocean farms along the Northeast coast of the USA. The first seaweed we are working with is a varietal of Kelp called Saccharina Latissima.
Kelp for Your Health
Kelp - a brown macroalgae - is overflowing with Vitamins A, D, E, B1, and B2, as well as Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Calcium, Potassium, and Iron. In fact, one bag of Kelp Jerky has over 100% of your daily value of B1 & B2, 80% of your daily value for Iron, and 30% of your daily intake of Magnesium.
Seaweeds support your body’s ability to absorb water and are an excellent source of Iodine that helps to support a healthy metabolism. In fact, seaweeds are one of the only foods that expand in your stomach, making you feel fuller longer.
