Celebrate Seaweed!

Alkalizing

Seaweeds can help to alkalize our blood, neutralizing the over-acidic effects of our modern diet as well as reducing the acids in foods in which they’re added as an ingredient.

Blood Purifying

The chemical composition of seaweeds is so close to human blood plasma that they are excellent at regulating and purifying our blood.

Calcium

Seaweeds can contain up to 10 times more calcium than milk and 8 times as much as beef.

Detoxifying

They are rich in chlorophyll (the pigment that makes some seaweeds green) which is a powerful, natural detoxifier that helps to draw out waste products.

Antioxidants

Seaweeds contain lignans (naturally occurring chemical compounds) which have anti-inflammatory properties.

Chelating Properties

Seaweed’s chelating properties offer protection from a wide array of environmental toxins, including heavy metals, pollutants, and radiation by-products, by converting them to harmless salts that the body can eliminate easily.

Weight Loss

Seaweeds play a role in boosting weight loss and deterring cellulite build-up. Their naturally high concentration of iodine helps to stimulate the thyroid gland, which is responsible for maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Bioavailable

The vitamins and minerals in seaweeds are highly bioavailable, meaning our bodies absorb them more readily than pill-based nutritional supplements.

Environment

Seaweeds can also improve the health of our oceans by absorbing carbon dioxide and helping to reduce acidification.

IF KALE AND BROCCOLI HAD A BABY… IT WOULD BE SEAWEED!

Seaweeds are one of the most nutritionally dense plants on the planet, and also the most abundant source of minerals in the plant kingdom as they have access to all the nutrients in the ocean. Scientifically described as “macro-algae”, seaweeds are evolutionary miracles. Indeed, they are the ocean’s superfoods. Some of the most ancient forms of multi-cellular life, these organisms have survived through the eons- converting sunlight into abundant nutrition for thousands of other species that have come and gone.

We Put Seaweed in Your Pasta!

The Art and Science of Superfood Seaweed

You deserve the finest regional, North American seaweeds.  That’s why we apply art and science to farming your sea vegetables safely and sustainably.  Everyone on our team has the skill, experience and nerdy dedication to growing—and eating—seaweed.  We are delighted to bring you these amazing seaweeds, connect you to the places they come from, and the people who harvest them.

Celebrate Seaweed

In Baja California—the renowned gastronomic and food growing region and the Wine Capital of Mexico—we started by partnering with the local University to grow our seaweed outdoors in a dynamic biological environment, learning from renowned seaweed experts and grad students alike. In Alaska, we partner with entrepreneurial fishermen to grow seaweed in some of the most pristine ocean waters on earth.

Located right next to the ocean, we take our time to thoughtfully cultivate the finest seaweed in triple filtered seawater, plus sunlight and love. Unlike land-based vegetables, our seaweed requires no fresh water to grow or process. We carefully monitor and control the growing environment, then harvest and dry our seaweed naturally, using a proprietary process that uses NO solvents or other chemicals.
