Global demand for macroalgal and microalgal foods is growing and algae are increasingly being consumed for functional benefits beyond the traditional considerations of nutrition and health. Despite this trend, cooking with seaweed is still far from mainstream in our western culture. This raises an important question: What takes us Europeans and Americans (as opposed to our Asian friends) so long? Is it in our culture? Is it in our native algae species? Or are we simply not awake yet? In this webinar, seaweed chefs, professors and other experts in the field will share their latest insights on this topic, and will – without a doubt – leave you with a greater appetite for algae.

The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims to promote a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. Both microalgae and seaweed will be presented.

It is very relevant to bring together the main stakeholders for knowledge exchange and collaboration and to learn from others.
