Sea spaghetti - seaweed foraging in devon

Sea Spaghetti (Himanthalia elongate)

Sea Spaghetti is a particularly striking edible seaweed which grows in long ribbon-like blades, of up to several meters in length. It's due to this remarkable appearance that the sea vegetable earned its name.

With a mild taste that is slightly nutty and slightly salty, with a chewy texture it is an important player in our edible seaweed mixes.

As with the other seaweeds used in Seaspoon products (Dulse and Sea Lettuce) Sea Spaghetti is endowed with a broad range of minerals, is high in fibre and in particular boosts our mixes with calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin C.

Both potassium and magnesium are vital for maintaining a ship-shape and healthy nervous system, and whilst popeye was known for his spinach intake, if he'd known that Sea Spaghetti was also a good source of magnesium...maybe he'd have changed his food of choice!

So, due to its mild taste, nutritional impact and versatility, Sea Spaghetti is a key ingredient in our edible seaweed blends.
