What it does
Pelvetia also has an unusual composition. Omega fatty acids are 3 times higher than our other native species, with an ideal ratio that’s good brain food; low in iodine so it’s ideal for children; an effective prebiotic ideal for digestion; and rich in antioxidants for intestinal cleansing and blood circulation. With comprehensive minerals and trace elements and a little of every nutrient group, it fills all the gaps in a daily diet.
How to use
In almost any food, from breakfast muesli to a stir fry, pasta topping to vegetable salad, Pelvetia has a mild flavour so these pieces can be eaten as they are, slightly chewy, or left in cold water for a few minutes to soften. Safe for permanent daily use in all ages.
Half a jar (25 grams) can be left for an hour in a litre jug of cold water, with squeezed quartered lemon, grated ginger roots and 4 teaspoons or T-bags of green tea, then strained out into a new jug to drink or keep in a frigde for up to 3 weeks – a deliciously clean, very high antioxidant drink with a serious nutrient profile! It can be sweetened if required with a little pure apple or grape juice. Ask for your free ‘Tonic Recipe’ from firstname.lastname@example.org.

What is Nutritious Food Seaweed?
NFS makes the quality of certified seaweed in a product transparent to consumers, with access to its nutritional profile. The total composition of NFS seaweed is monitored and must meet minimum and maximum criteria both for the good stuff (nutrients) and the bad stuff (contaminants), compliant with the most stringent international food safety standards. NFS is more than a quality standard, enabling the sustainable production of world class seaweed for human consumption which gives seaweed producers access to new markets at home and abroad. Rooted in the principles of biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming, with aspects of marine science, botany, nutrition and conservation, NFS has been administered by the Seaweed Health Foundation together with the Biodynamic Association since inception in 2014.

“But does it taste any good? Too right: pep up the blandest of pizzas, put some poke into the most industrial of builders’ breakfasts or mix it with dried flaked chilli for an offshore combo that would bring Jacques Cousteau to the surface.”
Nigel Bardon, Maxim Magazine, England 1998
“The most happening salt mills are being filled with Seagreens® organic seaweed Salad & Condiment.”

“I cycled 100kms and during the event I had two protein shakes, some nibbles and I was drinking the seaweed and green tea drink, a high antioxidant tonic recipe I made with the Seagreens®
Pelvetia seaweed. At the end I was tired, but the next day I had no aches and pains at all. I was completely amazed. My cousin who cycled with me, was very sore for several days. I am now planning to cycle from London to Paris in July. So I know what I will be drinking!”
