Seaweed is a simple and yet fascinating plant that is a treasure chest of natural chemicals and beneficial ingredients not available from land vegetables. Seaweed draws from the sea an incomparable wealth of mineral elements, macro elements, vitamins (A,B,C,D,E,K, folic acid) and trace elements like iodine. Seaweed has many uses – we use fucus vesiculousus it in our bread to replace some salt and to add nutrients. We also sell culinary seaweed, seaweed salt and seaweed seaweed for bathing.
