Why we love it

Channel Salt Bae and impress your house plants by finessing your meal with shiitake seaweed sprinkles. A bowl of ramen or onigiri just isn't the same without them. And we personally love the woodsy umami they add to our usual programming of food.

How it does good

Saving water with the superfood of the sea

The world's food model still has a long way to go before nearing close to perfection, and Ocean's Balance stands behind seaweed as the superfood to help fix it. Not only is it a zero-input crop that needs no water, arable land or fertilizers to grow, seaweed is also one of the most nutritionally dense plants on the planet. Ocean's Balance set themeslves apart by sustainably growing and harvesting this sea veggie from the pristine waters of the Gulf of Maine, which yields a smaller carbon footprint and products you can trust.

  • responsible sourcing

    Ocean’s Balance makes all of their products with seaweed sustainably grown in the Gulf of Maine and harvested by their farmers or partner farmers using sustainable foraging techniques. Their farm sites are approved by the Maine Department of Marine Resources, ensuring environmental integrity across the board. Farming seaweed also helps the local economy, as it's an alternative means of income for coastal fishermen, and processing provides employment opportunities for immigrant communities.
  • low carbon footprint

    Ocean’s Balance has developed zero-input techniques that don't require arable land, fertilizers, and fresh water—a huge plus as droughts and fresh water shortages become more common.
  • supporting key causes

    Ocean’s Balance supports Maine’s working waterfront, helping coastal communities thrive by helping fishermen start their own seaweed farms, thereby diversifying their streams of income. Their internship program is committed to assisting the future workforce in Maine, letting students of marine science, marine affairs, and environmental studies gain firsthand knowledge of growing an emerging brand, and opening doors to employment possibilities in the aquaculture sector.

How to use it

Ocean's Balance

Ocean's Balance has a serious love for Maine, and an equally big heart for the ocean. Committed to making seaweed #PartOfTheSolution to fix the world's broken food model, they only source the sea vegetable from farms using sustainable growing and harvesting practices. CEO Mitchell Lench co-founded the company because he recognized that seaweed was a long-term super food for people and the planet, and sticking with locally grown kelp in the cold waters of Maine was the way to do it.
