For people following vegan, vegetarian, raw or macrobiotic diets one of the biggest challenges is meeting daily nutritional requirements. Since meat and fish are a primary source of these nutrients, if you reduce or eliminate animal products from your diet it is imperative you find other sources to meet your Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). That’s where seaweed can help! For example, one gram of seaweed contains enough iodine to meet your daily RDA. Seaweed can also contain up to 10x more calcium than milk, and 8x as much as beef.
