Sea lettuce is harvested and enjoyed worldwide and is common in temperate and colder seas. We sustainably harvest and handle our Sea Lettuce that is certified organic and we voluntarily test for heavy metals, chemicals and microbiological contaminants.
Sea Lettuce is very high in iron and protein, similar to that of Dulse, and it is also high in iodine, aluminum, manganese and nickel. Like most of our sea veggies, Sea Lettuce provides considerable amounts of dietary fiber (31%). And it is sun-dried so it is totally RAW!
