Guide to edible seaweeds

Edible seaweed is a highly nutritious, versatile and delicious plant-based food source that can boost your health and spice up your plate. Often used in vegan cooking to create a ‘fishy’ taste, seaweed also boasts a huge range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre and polysaccharides.

The most notable benefit is the iodine content found in seaweed. Iodine is a critical mineral in the function of thyroid hormone production, the recommended daily amount of iodine is 150mcg for an adult. And our seaweeds can contribute significantly to this, with just one gram of Nori containing 25% of your RDA, Wakame containing 93% of your RDA and Royal Kombu containing a massive 1,693% of your RDA.

Sea Lettuce

_DSC4912Our sea lettuce is certified organic and sustainably hand-harvested off the coast of Ireland. It has a distinctly delicious umami flavour and is a great edible seaweed to add to sauces, soups, broths and salads. As it is a dried ingredient it will last for a good long while in your cupboard, simply rehydrate as needed.


Our bladderwrack edible seaweed is certified organic and sustainably hand-harvested off the coast of Ireland. Bladderwrack is one of the most common seaweeds found on the coast of the UK. It is easily recognisable from the small sacks at the end of the branches that are so enjoyable to burst!

Bladderwrack is known to have one of the highest levels of iodine amongst all seaweed varieties, it can provide up to 30 times the standard daily intake of iodine. Bladderwrack is also commonly used in skincare products due to its high levels of vitamin A and E.


NoriOur nori seaweed has traditionally been harvested off the coast of the British Isles as well as in East Asia. This edible seaweed is perhaps the most well-known and is commonly used in Japan to make sushi, as well as the Welsh favourite laverbread. Now a favourite with vegans it is also used in plant-based restaurants around the world.

Rich in phosphorus, manganese, iron, copper and zinc, as well as vitamins A, B and C, this delicious umami seaweed is a fantastic addition to so many foods. Why not try using it in plant-based ‘tuna mayo’, it creates a wonderfully authentic taste while providing a wealth of nutrients.


Wakame has a delicious, savoury, umami flavour and is a staple ingredient in Japanese cuisine. Prized for its iodine content, wakame has long been used for thyroid support, helping to increase energy, and regulate hormone production.

Wakame is rich in calcium, magnesium, manganese and folate along with many other minerals. It is a great source of fatty acids and antioxidants along with vitamins A, C, K and E.

Irish Moss

Irish moss, an edible seaweed that grows primarily off the coast of Ireland and Eastern America, boasts a rich nutritional profile, great flavour and acts as a fantastic thickener in many recipes. It is often made into a dense and congealed gel that is very popular in plant-based cooking as a replacement for gelatine in desserts, ice-creams, puddings and jelly.
