Catherine Arnston hopes the Sharks like algae when she pitches EnergyBits, her algae-based nutritional supplement tablets, in Shark Tank episode 810. Energy Bits are small algae tablets that you chew or swallow. They provide people with a high protein, high performance snack food that is 60% protein. All EnergyBits are 100% organic, 100% natural, 100% green, and 100% non GMO.
In the early 1900's, German scientists discovered algae had the highest concentration of protein in the world and could be used as food. Algae-based foods were used by Germany to prevent mass starvation after WWI and again by the Japanese after WWII.
Arnston started the business in 2008 to create a healthy, low-calorie snack. The product gives athletes instant energy and endurance, stops hunger, helps with weight loss, helps prevent colds and hangovers, speeds muscle recovery for athletes, reduces high blood pressure, diabetes and other illnesses. The company is expanding nationally and internationally.
She likely wants a Shark to help with managing growth. Will the Sharks like algae?
