Health benefits of Sea Spaghetti Seaweed
Sea Spaghetti is a brown seaweed so has excellent iodine levels and also offers a source of calcium and magnesium. Brown seaweeds offer a concentrated and natural source of iodine – an essential nutrient for human health – specifically linked to immunity, thyroid, brain, ovarian and breast health. Iodine is an essential nutrient for the production of a hormone called thyroxin which helps to regulate many body functions. It has also been linked to apoptosis (cell death) which is critical to fighting cancer – particularly thyroid and breast cancer. This Harvard study encourages improving diet before taking nutritional supplements because most nutrients are more potent when they come from food, and they are accompanied by many nonessential but beneficial nutrients, such as hundreds of carotenoids, flavonoids, minerals, and antioxidants that aren’t in most supplements. Additionally, food tastes better and is often cheaper than nutritional supplements!

How to use Sea Spaghetti Seaweed
Try Sea Spaghetti in salads, soups, broths or add to stir-fries, pasta dishes or even in baking! Soak branches in tepid water or a liquid of your choice to experiment with flavour (will take on the flavour of whatever it is hydrated in). Of all the seaweeds in our range, this seaweed is the one that needs a little more time to rehydrate. Just soak for at least 30 minutes or boil/steam to speed the process. It will expand in size and take on the texture of al dente pasta.
