Sea lettuce. Although it may seem like it, sea lettuce is not related to the regular lettuce, but owes its name to the large green leaves. As the name suggests, it grows in the sea. And so it is a seaweed, not a plant. Ulva is Latin for 'swamp plant', which refers to this humble, bright green seaweed.

Did you know that sea lettuce grows on a surface that it clings to with its "hold"? The substrate can consist of stones, but sea lettuce can also grow on shellfish!

Taste: Sea lettuce has a fresh and strong taste that resembles that of sorrel, but also has something spinach-like.

Use: Eat sea lettuce fresh with lemon juice or in a green salad. Roast it in the oven at 95º and crumble it as a seasoning in grains, soups, salads. Add it to meat, fish, oysters and vegetables. Or pack fish with it. Fry it, or chop it finely for a salad. Cook it together with spinach or finely chopped cabbage. Eat it as a snack, like nori or drink it as hot tea. Or sauté sea lettuce in olive oil and deglaze it with shoyu and ginger syrup. Dried, in flakes, it can be sprinkled over fries as an extra seasoning. Sea lettuce is also used in skin care preparations. It is further processed in animal feed, for example for aquarium fish.

The seaweed may contain traces of molluscs, crustaceans and fish and may contain small natural materials from the sea. The white color that may appear on the seaweed comes from the salt in the seaweed and provides natural preservation.

Compostable foil

The compostable film is made from cellulose from wood. Because this is 100% compostable, the product can serve as food for new crops after use according to the cradle to cradle principle. The foil is sturdy, oil, moisture and freezer resistant, suitable for use up to 40°C and has a clear, transparent appearance. The film that Porto Muiños uses is a sustainable alternative to environmentally harmful plastic products and is certified for compostability, both industrial and GFT, according to EN13432, which means that it completely breaks down into CO₂ and water in a maximum period of 12 weeks
