The Definitive Guide to the Edible Seaweeds of Britain & Ireland

The Seaweed Notebook

The Seaweed Notebook covers the traditional and modern use of edible seaweeds in the British Isles and Northern Europe.

It traces their story from the beginning of recorded history to the present day, through their food, medicine and folklore.

Seaweed is finally being recognised as an amazing superfood. Nutrient packed and full of delicious umami tastes.

The notebook is fabulous! I love the amount of information you’ve amassed, especially like the blending of clinical research and folklore uses. Congratulations on a job well done.

In this new online course, you’ll learn about which species are rich in minerals and trace elements.

Proteins and vitamins. Dietary fibre, and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

You’ll discover the latest cutting-edge research into edible seaweeds.

How they are becoming new medicinal foods, and the role they might play in the future of health-care.

Toxicity, contraindications and possible side-effects are also covered.

You also get access to 15 comprehensive notebooks, each one covering a different edible seaweed.

These notebooks are a complete profile, including full colour photos and video to help with identification.

The Notebooks will be regularly updated (for free) as new information becomes available.

This compelling online course celebrates seaweeds as the versatile and extraordinary food and medicine that they are.

A highly readable, intuitive and comprehensive guide. I find the numerous photos and videos enable me to appreciate what the seaweeds look like in slightly different environments and maturity. Also useful is the detail on the uses both for food and medicine.
