How can I use it?

  • Use it instead of salt

Seagreens® Culinary Ingredient

Ready-milled grains of Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed for use in cooking and baking, or sprinkled on almost any raw or cooked food.

Used sparingly (eg. half a teaspoon per person in plain broccoli soup) it significantly broadens the nutritional profile, combining with the food to bring out its natural flavour without dominating.

Use it instead of salt: sodium is in ideal natural balance with all the other mineral salts your body needs - to strengthen and support the cardiovascular system.

Especially useful in children’s favourites and an inexpensive way to pep up the most minimal diet!

Taste Tips & Recipes

What's in it

Dried granulated Seagreens® native wild Wrack seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum whose composition and health benefits Seagreens has studied and documented for over two decades. Nothing added or extracted. Non allergenic. Safe for permanent daily use.


British Isles and Nordic region. The best seaweed species are found in different locations. Seagreens has developed 5 food certified remote harvesting locations and production facilities in England, Iceland, Ireland, Norway and Scotland.

What it does

This classic food ingredient adds a complete mineral complex and umami flavours to everyday foods. Ascophyllum is a natural prebiotic, supports gastrointestinal health and bowel function, reduces the glycemic index in carbohydrate foods and with other dietetic measures, contributes to weight management.

As a good source of iodine it contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function and the maintenance of normal skin. It adds a comprehensive balance of micronutrients to a normal daily diet.

How to use

Add a couple of generous pinches to ready meals, pasta, rice, meat, potatoes and any other vegetables cheeses yoghurts, soups, sauces and teas.

Bake into bread and use it to replace all or at least 50% of salt, or mix with salt and herbs as a condiment.

It can also be mixed with a little cold water to soften and blend it into other foods.

All Seagreens® nutrition products contain significant levels of natural iodine. The uptake of iodine in the body has been shown to be approximately 1/3rd of intake illustrated in the following table. Safe for permanent daily use.

"Using it instead of salt the loaf rises as well if not better...3.5 per cent sodium against 40 per cent in salt" - unsolicited letter in The Independent “Nutrient supplements from wild organic seaweed collected in crystal clear Arctic waters, also for cooking and seasoning”
Harper’s Bazaar

"Aquatic edibles may look strange, but they’re dripping with health benefits”
You Are What You Eat


Many children tend towards a limited range of foods with staples like pizza, baked beans and french fries.

A sprinkle of Seagreens® turns these into highly nutritious "whole" foods.

Adding a teaspoon of Culinary Ingredient to a can of baked beans not only provides virtually every nutrient; it aids nutrient absorption and digestion, with less flatulence!

This is why quality manufacturers add Seagreens® to their foods, for example Artisan Bread biodynamic bread range, Fiddles Payne salt mixtures, Neal's Yard Remedies, Whole Earth's Organic Baked Beans, and others.

Nutritional Profile/Ingredients - Seagreens® Culinary Ingredient

Such a comprehensive balance of nutrients is found in no other natural food but seaweed. From the primordial ocean to the vegetation and animals which remain our food today, our own bodily composition has its origins in the earliest organisms and the chemistry of life itself.

As life forms became increasingly diverse they adapted to more specific diets. To survive on a narrower range of nutrients and protect themselves against toxicity, each evolved different mechanisms of selectivity and defence. That is why we need a wide variety of land based foods, since each has a little of what we need. But nutrient loss in agricultural soils and manufactured and denatured food makes nutritional balance, especially of all the micronutrients, harder to achieve.

Almost as old as the ocean, seaweed is an outstanding whole food which complements and fills the gaps in all land food and special diets.
