USDA Awards Grant To Fund Development Of a Kelp Additive For Bread

November 29, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

The USDA has awarded $600,000 to Maine-based company VitaminSea to help develop a kelp-based additive for bread. The company received a grant last year to prove the feasibility of adding kelp to bread; the new funding will finance development of a prototype through partnerships with bakeries that will develop recipes and work on market testing. According to a project summary, commercialization of the kelp additive has the potential to "provide the nutritional benefits of consuming seaweed to a large population." [Image Credit: © VitaminSea Seaweed]
