Seaweed offers a sustainable, environmentally-friendly food source

Seaweed offers a sustainable, environmentally-friendly food source

Seaweed isn't just valued for its nutritional benefits. It's also one of the fastest growing plants in the world, making it a highly sustainable and environmentally-friendly food source.

According to The Atlantic, Professor Ronald Osinga at Wageningen University in the Netherlands actually calculated that a global network of seaweed farms totaling 180,000 square kilometers could provide enough protein for the entire world's population. Seaweed is a uniquely efficient food source, because it is so rich with nutrients, including iodine, vitamins and micronutrients. 

You don't even have to eat raw it raw in order to enjoy seaweed for health. Instead, try Seagreens Food Granules, which enhances the flavor of food and adds nutritional balance to any meal: Just one teaspoon contains more iron than a plate of broccoli and more calcium than half a cup of milk, making it a healthy and easy addition to your daily eating habits. 

Additionally, seaweed requires none of the fresh water, fertilizer or deforestation that makes other farming harmful to the environment. Instead of destroying the environment, seaweed actually helps in restoring it, consuming excess nutrients from urban runoff and providing habitats for fish and aquatic invertebrates. This makes seaweed a wonderful option for farmers moving forward with restorative and sustainable practices. 

Seagreens products contain all the minerals, micronutrients, trace elements and vitamins that are naturally found in the fresh ocean waters where Seagreens seaweed is grown and harvested. Seagreens organic wild wrack seaweeds are produced to the company's award-winning proprietary standard (patents pending) among Scotland's remote Western Islands in pristine Grade A waters. All Seagreens products are organic, kosher and certified free from allergens and contaminants.
