EMERALD ISLE IRISH SEAWEED
high quality, organic seaweed from Ireland
Emerald Isle Seaweed is a family run business, offering the finest in high quality Organic Irish Seaweed.
A FAMILY AFFAIR
Using traditional methods of harvesting seaweed, handed down from generations of Irish coastal dwellers to the present day. Emerald Isle Seaweed is certified with the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association.
Emerald Isle never exposes the seaweed to high temperatures, which means all of the seaweed maintains the maximum possible nutrient density.
TREASURE FROM THE SEA
You can be fully assured with the quality of the products. The seaweed has undergone a full range of thorough tests which include chemical, pesticides, water content, and nutrition. All of which have been carried out in laboratory conditions.
All tests carried out are UKAS accredited. The HACCP control system is also in place.
LOW IN HEAVY METALS
The ocean in northern Ireland is much cleaner than other areas where most seaweed is harvested from.
This results in a seaweed that is lower in heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium.
Most seaweed supplements are now sourced from China, where the water is incredibly polluted. While a brand may test for some contaminants - like heavy metals and pesticides - there are huge amounts of pollutants put into Chinese rivers and oceans that are not tested for in seaweed supplements. The only way to even start to get a clean seaweed supplement is to avoid those made with Chinese ingredients. Our seaweed supplements come from a family-owned business in Ireland. The Higgins family have carved a niche in the seaweed market by developing upon 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. The harvest is then hung by hand in a specially constructed drying room. The waters around Ireland are some of the purest and cleanest in the world. No additives or fillers are added. Just pure seaweed goodness.
