Seaweed is an excellent cleanser, digestive aid, detox. nutrient and source of calcium and iron. This product has a very pleasant marine flavor and smell.
Raw Material Source: Seagate's seaweed is harvested by divers from an isolated bay along the central Pacific coast of Baja California. This seaweed has no level of detectable contamination. It is a highly sustainable marine resource, growing up to 3 feet per day during the summer months.
Processing: Seagate divers deliver the fresh seaweed directly to the factory on the day that it is harvested. Seagate washes the seaweed in freshwater, removing most of the residual seawater salt. The remaining sea salt provides a rich marine taste and mineral content. Seagate freeze-dries the seaweed in modern stainless steel tanks, capturing all of its valuable nutrients.
Iodine is an important trace mineral found in seaweed. One serving of seaweed powder (10 grams) contains 0.12 mgs of iodine or 59% of the suggested daily value.
