Scottish seaweed brings a new concept to the market

PureSea®​ Protect is a flavourless, white microencapsulated seaweed powder providing enhanced and targeted nutrient release, as proven in independent University research.

PureSea®​ Protect is coated in a layer of plant protein, ensuring it remains a natural, vegan and nutrient-dense wholefood. PureSea®​ is a good source of the essential nutrient iodine supporting six EU Approved Health Claims. Iodine is unavailable in land plants and fresh water algae such as spirulina, with seaweed being the only natural vegan source.

Recent research shows that severe lack of iodine is one of the leading causes of brain damage in the developing world, and even mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency, which is a growing issue in the West, can be linked to unexpected weight gain, fatigue, hair loss and bad skin, and problems during pregnancy. Furthermore, the core PureSea® species, Ascophyllum nodosum, a brown seaweed, has a rich nutrient profile, which includes fibre, polyphenols, fatty acids, vitamins, key minerals and trace elements.

Being highly dispersible, PureSea®​ Protect is ideal in ready to drink sachets and beverages, sports nutrition, powder blends, food supplement shots and more, targeting a wide range of consumers, ages, lifestyles and nutrition requirements.

PureSea®​ is part of the Gee Lawson range of speciality ingredients, distributed in Europe by the LEHVOSS Group.
