Sea lettuce is a green, transparent algae that grows in a sheltered environment that is rich in nutrients. Sea lettuce attaches itself to rocks by means of a small adhesive root. The seaweed grows all year round on the coast of Finistere (French department, Brittany) and is mainly harvested in the spring, a season when the sea lettuce is very tender.
Iron is necessary for the proper functioning of our body because it is involved in numerous enzymatic reactions, for the transport of oxygen, for the absorption of oxygen in the cells, etc.
Sea lettuce contains a high amount of fiber which helps to improve digestion and bowel movements. It has a low fat content and mainly contains the polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential for our functioning (omega 3 fatty acids, EPA). Sea lettuce also contains many antioxidants, as well as vitamins (such as provitamin A, B1, C, B5).
