Small chopped pieces of Seagreens® native wild Wrack seaweed Pelvetia canaliculata, whose composition and health benefits Seagreens has studied and documented for over two decades. Pelvetia is unusual, for half the time growing out of the water, hence its common name Channel Wrack – it holds sea water inside its fronds at low tide. Nothing added or extracted. Non-allergenic.
In our view this is the seaweed, even for infants and children, with an exceptional balance of all the micronutrients.
Per gram it has lower iodine at around 200µg (66µg uptake), higher essential fatty acids with an ideal 3:1 ratio between Omega 6 and 3, good EPA and DHA in the Omega 3 (though additional DHA might be advised in ADHD), and 2,783µg of Omega 9 for immunity, insulin resistance, cardiovascular health, and stress.
To cap it all it provides an almost equal amount of ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid 269.6µg) and EPA (Eicosapentenoic acid 269.82µg).
It also has a mild taste. As many children have shown, even before they can speak, it can be eaten just as it is! Beat that.
