Seaweed's potential as a sustainable source of food

Seaweed's potential as a sustainable source of food

Nutritionists, health experts and the food industry are starting to focus on seaweed in general and kelp in particular for its all-round benefits

Seaweeds have been known to be a healthy and diverse food source - just ask the Japanese.

With sustainability coming to the front in every industry including the food sector, the added sustainability benefit of seaweeds are making them an even more important choice in the overall food ecosystem.

Add to the above various claims about its extra health benefits, the social benefits it provides in the form of employment to the people in coastal regions and even some rather surprising claims about its good taste, and one wonders if one could be seeing a lot more seaweeds on our food shelves in the near future.
