Seagreens® classic ready-milled grains of wild Ascophyllum seaweed are used in cooking and baking, or sprinkled on almost any raw or cooked food. Go to the Recipes page above for practical - and delicious - ideas!
They are also used to soak sprouts from alph-alpha and chick peas to barley and wheat grass, with significantly earlier germination and visibly stronger growth.
In 2008 the government-funded Food Innovation project approved Seagreens® as a healthy replacement for salt.
Most of the excess sodium in our diet comes from its ubiquitous (and inquitous) inclusion in manufactured foods, but Seagreens® new Mineral Salt contains only 50% Cornish Crystal Salt - a more tasty, fully organic and much healthier way to use salt at home.
"One of my favourite ingredients, Seagreens®, is a UK produced wild wrack seaweed granule that has a complete nutritional profile, that is it contains all the vitamins and minerals the body needs. It adds texture, flavour and nutrition to just about any savoury dish you can think of. It is expensive, but you only need a little - one teaspoon per serving is ample"
- Kate Wood, author of Raw Living ('detox your life and eat the high energy way'), Grub Street, London, August 2007
You'll find Cacaomole, one of Kate's favourite recipes, on the Recipes page.
Use sparingly to add a highly nutritious taste of the wild to many dishes. Consumers describe “a subtle nutty taste and texture” in taste tests and half a teaspoon adds a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals and will enrichen the flavour, for example of something as plain as broccoli soup.
“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, August 1998.
In a family sized loaf add a level tablesppon and leave out the salt. Use it in seafood dishes, with bacon and eggs, in risottos and casseroles; sprinkle it on pizzas and among sliced potatoes and cheese; with baked vegetables; as seasoning in stocks and sauces. A baked potato filling becomes a nutritious meal, and if you're going to enjoy fish and chips, “pass the seaweed” is a must!
