Seaweed

Our seaweed comes from the cold, pristine & gorgeous waters of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.  Due to the testing & standards our supplier practices, we know that the seaweed used in our biscuits comes from unpolluted waters and from ethical & sustainable sources, thereby helping to protect the environment.  Why seaweed? Seaweed offers one of the broadest ranges of minerals of any food.  It contains virtually all of the minerals found in the ocean which also happens to be many of the same minerals found in blood.  It is an especially good plant-based source of iodine, Vitamin C, manganese, vitamins B1, B2 & B6, vitamin A, copper, protein, potassium, zinc, niacin, phosphorus and iron.  The polysaccharides found in seaweed have been studied for their anti-inflammatory properties, particularly in the area of osteoarthritis, for their anti-viral activity and their promise in preventing blood clots & lowering cholesterol levels thus contributing to cardiovascular health.  Due to the many Wellness based properties of seaweed and the amazing variety of minerals it contains, we use it as in ingredient in TWO of our biscuit flavours, Skin Soothe & Well Being.
