So, what is duckweed?

Duckweed is a tiny aquatic plant that floats on the surface of still or slow-moving water bodies. It's also known as "water lentils," and it's an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, making it a popular food ingredient in many parts of the world. Despite its small size, duckweed packs a powerful nutritional punch and has been touted as a sustainable and environmentally friendly crop due to its ability to grow rapidly, requiring very little space, water, or fertilizer. In addition to being used in animal feed, duckweed can be added to smoothies, salads, or used as a substitute for spinach or kale in various dishes.
