We worry about CO2 emissions from our industries and cars. But we forget about the methane emissions from the worldwide livestock population all too quickly. Methane is a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2 and accounts for 15% of the greenhouse effect. Ruminants such as cows, goats and sheep emit a lot of methane.
The Dutch Weed Burger is a 100% vegetable burger. The burger replaces animal protein with vegetable sources such as seaweed and algae. The burger is tasty, healthy and sustainable. It is sustainable because no fresh water or additional agricultural land is required for the production of the vegetable proteins.
The succulent patty is made from roasted soya flakes and kombu (seaweed). The bun has been given an extra seaweed-kick with chlorella, which gives the protein a green tinge. The ‘weed sauce’ is a tasty, spicy, creamy sauce enriched with real Dutch sea lettuce from Zeeland.
