I have supported this brand through their Kickstarter campaign 3-4 years ago. I've talked to the brand's CEO and her mission and goal are all focused on sustainability by addressing food systems affected by climate change. They take extra effort to educate on how seaweed, notably kelp, can help address climate change. I continue to buy their products. I like the Rosemary Maple and Chili Lime flavors the most. However, to each their own taste. I've had it as a snack or cut it up to put into soups and salads. The ingredients are clean I have not yet tried their kelp burgers or kelp pasta.

Feedback

More sustainable packaging! The price point is a bit pricey, so I usually buy through Thrive Market and get a much better deal.

Really liked Akua's burger taste and texture but was still in beta (poor packaging, no nutritionals included).

Feedback

Packaging still being professionalized.

I was intrigued by the concept of kelp jerky. I like seaweed and I've liked other plant-based jerkys, so I picked up a bag of Akua at Pop-Up Grocer.

Feedback

... Everything. I really didn't like this. It tasted intensely oceanic and made my mouth green.
