Seaweed Superheroes


Can the world’s (micro)nutrient demand be met with seaweed?

Date: 28 November
Place: Forum, C313
Time: 19:30

It is nutritious, does not require fertiliser, it does not even require land.  Seaweed in Europe is a relatively new, but hot topic, while people in East Asia and coastal parts of Latin America have been eating it for centuries.

This evening Job Schipper (Hortimare) will speak about his vision on seaweed – what can we do with it in food production systems, including aquaculture and production of fertiliser to guarantee food safety.

Agnes van Dijk (Algues Atlantica) will discuss the nutritious value of seaweed in a diet and let you taste some of the seaweed products! Come join this discussion and boost up your micronutrient intake!
