Seagreens® - the mark of qualityNutritious Food Seaweed

Wherever it is identified as the seaweed ingredient in a product, Seagreens® is your ultimate quality assurance.

Most of our manufacturing customers identify the Seagreens® ingredient in their products because we provide comprehensive nutrition information to consumers.

Setting the standard

In 1997 Seagreens® wild wrack species were the first European seaweeds to be wild harvested according to DEFRA and Soil Association Organic Standards.

These Standards remain concerned with water quality, non-use of pesticides and environmental sustainability, but alone do not assure consumers of rigorous control of nutritional quality, contamination, allergens, raw ingredient quality or composition.

Large volumes of old seaweed can be cut and sold into the human food chain, which may be storm-cast, collected on the shoreline, or rapidly dried at high temperatures.

Even small scale artisan harvesting offers no guarantee of cleanliness, consistency, or nutritional composition.

A lot of seaweed is produced on an industrial scale for alginate extraction, horticulure, and animal feed.

During the first decade of this century, Seagreens® pioneered its own methods and standards which still  lead the way.

In 2014 they informed the development of the Nutritious Food Seaweed quality assurance scheme.

This is the only food standard in the world to give the consumer direct access to the minimum nutritional profile of the certified seaweed.
