Seaweed products or algae products are some of the most beneficial and well-known vegan products in the market. There are many different types of seaweed including wakame, nori and dulse that provide numerous health benefits to your body.
Here are only some of the seaweed benefits:
And many more.
Wakame is a brown algae that is mostly consumed in miso soups. It is also popular in salads and eaten raw. It is well known for its health benefits including rich in minerals and vitamins. Purchase dried wakame and soak it in water for 10 minutes before preparing it in the famous wakame salad. This will give it the glossy texture that we all love.
Nori is a red algae and is the seaweed used in sushi rolls. Nori is also consumed as a snack since it is available in sheets and has a crispy texture – like eating potato chips only replacing the potatoes with seaweed! It is also a great source of calcium, which is perfect for vegan and vegetarian diets. Nori can be consumed by those who are lactose intolerant and are in need of natural calcium intake.
Dulse is a red algae and is arguably considered to be the bacon of the sea. We are very excited about this one. It is like eating bacon only in a seaweed form. It lacks of the actual bacon texture but is a great alternative. I mean who would say no to a salad filled with vegetables but with the taste of bacon? Dulse is not only tasty, but it is said to have more health benefits than any other seaweed or vegetable. Dulse is perfect for providing calcium and can help keep joints and bones stronger for the seniors.
