Marine Algae

MarineAlgae1There are thousands of species of green, brown, red, and other marine (oceanic) algae, many of them edible. In fact, edible seaweeds have formed a staple part of traditional diets for many cultures for thousands of years. Being exceptionally rich in minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, and a range of highly accessible phytonutrients, marine algae are one of nature’s most valuable superfoods.

This site explores current and recent research on a handful of the most popular and widely studied seaweeds, including Algae calcareas, bladderwrack, dulse, Dunaliella salina, Ecklonia cava, kelp, Lithothamnion calcareum, and wakame.
