THE NEW SUPERFOOD

What makes a food “super”? If it delivers the maximum amount of nutrition with a minimum of calories. Kelp is one of the most nutritionally dense plants on the planet and also the most abundant source of minerals in the plant kingdom as it has access to all the nutrients in the ocean.  It is considered especially beneficial for health and well-being.  In addition to be being a natural source of iodine, which is necessary for regulating metabolism, kelp is also a natural source of magnesium, calcium, iron and essential vitamins such as C and K. Low in calories, carbohydrates and fat, it's also gluten free. What's not to love?

Kelp is especially high in calcium, with ten times more in content than milk. In addition to its rich iron and potassium content, it is also high in folate, from which folic acid is made. All of these minerals are important to maintaining a healthy body.

SAVES WATER, TOO

It might seem obvious to mention, but seaweed lives in the ocean, and needs no fresh water to grow. This is a crucial factor to consider as the planet is subjected to more frequent instances of fresh water shortages. 

local

All of our products are made from seaweed plants grown in the Gulf of Maine, a body of water renowned for its nutrient-rich, cold waters, which make for ideal growing conditions. 

Sustainable

Our farming practices ensure that the natural richness of the Gulf of Maine is preserved in order to support native wild fisheries and coastal communities.

PROTECTS THE OCEAN

Kelp also acts as a natural filter for the ocean, absorbing the nutrients it needs to thrive, such as phosphorous and nitrogen, resulting in the crystal clear water for which Maine is famous.

SUPPORTS THE LOCAL Economy

Seaweed farming is an alternative means of income for coastal fishermen, who struggle with collapsed fish stocks and lean times during the winter.
