I started Seaweed n Stuff three years ago. I have always enjoyed creating something different for my family and this passion brought me back home to the East Neuk where there is an abundance of inspiration and local ingredients to fire my imagination.
I use a hand made stove-top method which creates smaller batches and produces seaweed chutney packed full of character and outstanding flavours.
Seaweed is so good for us because it's packed with nutrients and is the most mineralised vegetable on earth containing all 56 elements essential for our health. Seaweed is unique in its ability to deliver these and all it takes is 1-2 teaspoons a day of Dulse, Shony or Kombu Seaweed which I use in my recipes. These are all from the sea around Scotland. Our products are suitable for vegans and are gluten free.
It might seem hard to believe but seaweed actually contains up to ten times more calcium than milk and eight times as much as beef.
Seaweed strengthens gut and promotes friendly bacteria making it great for our digestive health. It even expands by 25% in our tummies, so we magically feel full even after a small amount
Our bodies can’t make iodine, but seaweed is packed with the stuff which is just as well as it is really important for a healthy nervous system and brain.
