3 aromatic seaweeds with a quarter salt

  • 75% dried ground Seagreens® native wild seaweeds
  • 25% unrefined natural Dorset sea salt
  • Sprinkle it on everyday foods instead of salt
  • Replace salt in baking
  • Tasty enough to use by itself!

A wonderful umami condiment

Pass the Seagreens®. Sprinkle it on everyday foods instead of salt and to replace salt in baking. Tasty enough to use by itself!

What's in it

Seagreens® glass shaker contains 75% dried ground Seagreens® native wild seaweeds Dulse (Palmaria palmata) and Winged Kelp (Alaria esculenta), mixed with 25% unrefined natural Dorset sea salt. Nothing added or extracted. Non-allergenic.

Replacing salt with nutritious British wild seaweed was an innovation when Seagreens® introduced The Mineral Salt in 2011 – half the salt and twice the flavour!

The Ruby One takes this further still, in a unique blend of 3 aromatic seaweeds with a quarter salt but a naturally salty umami flavour. A delicious way to promote micronutrient sufficiency.

What it does

Replacing salt with nutritious British wild seaweed was an innovation when Seagreens® introduced The Mineral Salt in 2011 - half the salt and twice the flavour! The Ruby One takes this further still, in a unique blend of 3 aromatic seaweeds with a quarter salt but a naturally salty umami flavour. International research has shown the significant correspondence between reduced daily salt intake and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and stomach cancer (1).

A low salt intake of 4-6g daily halved the cancer risk for men versus those using 12-15g a day; in women it was 35% lower (2). 50% wrack seaweed with 50% salt was an antidote in rats fed salt at levels causing heart failure (3).

Seaweed is also a good source of iodine which contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function, and normal growth in children.

Profile of Nutrients - Seagreens® The Ruby One

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.
