30,000 reasons to make you feel good
Seaweeds are algae, a group of marine plants we also call sea vegetables. There are 30,000 species, which we group into brown, red and green. We’ve been putting seaweeds into skin care, cosmetics and food production for a long time.
Seaweed is the low GI superfood of the 21st century. The western world has woken up to the longer, healthier life of Japanese people who eat seaweed on a daily basis.
Including tiny portions of our smRt seaweed ingredients in your food, or enjoying our range of pasta and health bars, helps promote a healthy lifestyle and has proven health benefits. And since seaweed naturally keeps your bread fresh for much longer, it has a major economic benefit as well
The smRt ranges contain a carefully crafted blend of seaweeds to give you all the benefits of the seaweed, but without the seaweed taste. Of course, if you love the taste of seaweed, then simply increase the quantity of the smRt ingredient into your food.
Seaweed in your food is better for your health, and better for the planet. It’s the goodness inside.
Feel great and reduce salt intake
Anima sana in corpore sano – a healthy body, a healthy mind. An increasingly large number of people are cutting out the bad stuff, the heavily processed foods, and upping their intake of the good stuff: natural, healthy foods.
Seaweed contains soluble fibre, which leads us to feel fuller for longer, and can help lower bad cholesterol. A healthy lifestyle increases our performance, and when we’re physically well, we’re mentally at the top of our game too.
A good healthy diet is the twin sibling of regular exercise, and many active people are creating their own meals to support their lifestyle and their families too. They’re eating smRt pasta at meal times and smRt health bars for healthy snacks. They’re also baking their own healthy bread and even making their own healthy pasta. The smRt range and recipes are key to this lifestyle.
As a species we’re addicted to sugar and salt, and we use salt for more flavour all the time. Seaweed contains umami, a natural glutamate and a flavour enhancer for savoury foods. Eating foods with the seaweed goodness inside helps health-conscious people reduce their salt intake and still enjoy their meals.
