Are you interested in reducing the impact of your business?
We can help! We offer premium seaweed ingredients for a wide range of applications. Thanks to its unique composition, seaweed can be used to create healthier and more sustainable food products, including but not limited to delicious hybrid meat replacements in burgers, meatballs, sausages or ready meals. So if you are aiming to reduce Scope 3 emissions and improve Nutri Scores, seaweed can be a great option.
Seaweed is a unique untapped resource. It is an ideal source of high-quality proteins and contains an abundance of dietary fibers. It also contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and bioactive ingredients making it suitable for multiple applications. Importantly, using seaweed in food can improve nutri-scores as it enables the reduction of salt and saturated fats.
Seaweed is one of the fastest growing biomasses in the world, flourishing without using land, fresh water or fertilizer. Thanks to that, it can help solve many of the challenges we face today. Seaweed can, for instance, play a vital role in reducing CO2 emissions, saving fresh water use and combating ocean acidification.
SeaMeat® life cycle analyses showed that by replacing 25% of a 1kg burger with our seaweed blend, you can save 13kg of CO2 emissions and preserve 1800L of water.
Taste & Texture
The addition of seaweed improves the taste and texture of the food it is included in. When mixed with meat, for instance, seaweed is barely noticeable but improves the taste of the meat through its umami flavor. Additionally, seaweed also influences the texture of food thanks to its binding properties and holds a lot of water that makes food moister and juicier.
Uses & Applications
Our delicious seaweed is suited for a wide range of applications, from processed meat applications such as burgers, sausages, and meatballs, to ready meals such as lasagna. It can be combined with various meat types, such as beef, chicken or pork. Please reach out for inspiration about how to apply seaweed in your products.
