Treasures from the Sea

Rootless' Daily Seaweed Bites are alternatives to Iodine Supplements. A great example of how seaweed can be made convenient. Founder Sachi Singh sources the USDA-certified organic seaweed from the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Maine and Ireland. It is sustainably harvested and rigorously lab-tested for quality. In addition to providing reliable livelihood to harvesters and coastal communities, these thriving seaweeds help heal the surrounding ocean by absorbing carbon from the water and air.

Kilkeel based Crawford’s Rock has created an original range of healthy sea vegetable products.

Not only does it have an award winning taste, it is also classed as a Superfood, packed with minerals and vitamins. It provides high energy and low calories, making this little gem a natural gift from our seas.
