Could algae really help change the landscape to our current environmental issues? According to climate scientist Charles Greene, apparently so. With an incredibly fast growing time on non-productive land and a lack of need for fresh water, algae can be grown and fertilized more effectively than land crops. Algae could be the answer to some of our current challenges related to providing a source of carbon-neutral fuels, aquafeeds for agriculture and aquaculture industries, and food products.
NonFood, an early-stage food brand co-founded by Marlins Holm, sells an algae-based snack bar that contains 37% algae — created with 9 grams of clean protein, antioxidants, vitamin A, calcium, and absorbable iron.
