Seaweed beer

Seaweed has many advantages. Did you know that seaweed can be used to obtain substances that slow down Alzheimer’s disease? Or that the proteins from seaweed are extremely healthy and can be used for many foods? And that we can make packaging material from the remaining sugars? During the Food Chemistry course in the first year of the study programme, the following idea took shape: brew beer from seaweed. Students and beer are two closely related subjects. Especially when it comes to Chemistry students. Beer contains more than 800 components and as a chemist you enjoy them. You will be introduced to a very nice Zeeland product. You will also learn to think about how the ingredients of seaweed can be used to enrich the beer’s taste.
