Seaweed: The healthiest and most eco-friendly food crop of 2015
Seaweed has long been a valued food crop in Asia, but now it's being appreciated in the United States for its nutritional benefits and eco-friendly nature.
Seaweed delivers vitamins, iron and iodine, which is necessary in maintaining thyroid health, and is being lauded by health enthusiasts as the superfood of 2015. In fact, no other natural food contains as complete a balance of minerals, trace elements and micronutrients.
As the population of the world continues to grow, scientists are stressing the importance of finding more sustainable, healthy food sources like seaweed, which are grown in an eco-friendly ocean environment.
"The challenge is just making (the seaweed) to where it is palatable," Texas A&M PhD candidate Robert Webster told KHOU-TV, a local CBS affiliate.
Most Americans are not accustomed to cooking with seaweed or incorporating it into their daily meals, although they are eager to reap the health rewards that come with it. This is why Seagreens has created the Salad & Condiment, which can easily be used as a tasty seasoning for any savory dish, delivering the healthy impact of seaweed without the intimidating texture.
Seagreens products contain all the minerals, micronutrients, trace elements and vitamins that are naturally found in raw, organic seaweed. To combat the sometimes off-putting texture of raw seaweed, however, Seagreens has transformed the nutritious plant into easy-to-use and delicious condiments that can be added to any meal for added flavor and a fuller nutritional profile.
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.
