Emerald Isle Seaweed have carved a niche in the seaweed market by developing a traditional process of harvesting seaweed. Seaweed is hand cut from below the low tide mark. This ensures only the best seaweed is harvested and ensures the preservation of the crop for future generations. Our harvest is then hung by hand in a specially constructed drying room.
Our seaweed meal has undergone a full range of thorough tests which include chemical, pesticides, water content, and nutrition,.
All tests have be done in laboratory conditions and is UKAS accredited.
HACCP control system in place.
Research confirms this observation: two workers at the Agricultural Research Council’s unit of soil metabolism (now disbanded) reported in 1947 that 0.1 of a gram of sodium alginate added to 100 grams of soil increased its water-holding power by 11 per cent. This is the first way in which seaweed and seaweed products condition the soil: by increasing its water-holding capacity, and encouraging its crumb structure. This in turn leads to better aeration and capillary action, and these stimulate the root systems of plants to further growth, and so stimulate the soil bacteria to greater activity. by W.A. Stephenson
