The seaweeds are collected by hand in their natural environment on the Galician coast. Sea spaghetti has a fleshy texture, a green-brown colour and is long and thin, similar to green beans.

The seaweed can either be used soaked in salads or cooked in soups and boiled dishes. The following things should be noted:
- Hydration: soak in water for 10 minutes, change the water and soak again for 20 minutes.
- Cooking: boil in water for 10 minutes.
Caution: soaked/cooked they become 5 times larger than dried, so only use small quantities.

Directions for eating seaweed
Seaweeds are naturally rich in iodine. Although iodine is very important for normal thyroid function, excessive intake can lead to thyroid dysfunction. Therefore, an average daily intake of no more than 0.2 mg iodine is recommended. The iodine content varies depending on the type of algae and the preparation method. Therefore, please pay attention to the information on the package.
May contain traces of crustaceans, shellfish and fish.
