Healthy properties of algae
Algae are very versatile and can be used as an ingredient in all kinds of dishes as well as for seasoning. In addition, algae are very healthy as they contain many different nutrients and vitamins:
- They contain a lot of iodine. Even a small amount covers the daily requirement.
- Among other things, algae contain protein, soluble and insoluble fibre, vitamins B1 and B2, iron, manganese, copper, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fats.
- In smaller quantities they also contain vitamins A, C, E and K, folic acid, zinc, sodium, calcium and magnesium.
- Algae contain antioxidants
Directions for eating algae
Algae 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.
