Wild Irish Seaweeds have been harvesting wild organic seaweed from the west of Ireland for over 100 years. All our seaweed comes from the pristine nutrient rich waters of the Atlantic Ocean. We use sustainable harvesting methods to ensure our seaweed will regenerate for the generations to come.

We only harvest our seaweed when its in season to ensure the nutrient profile is at its at its richest. We test all our harvest areas for water quality and we dry our seaweed using our state of the art drying systems to ensure the nutrient profile remains intact.

All of the minerals required by human beings, including calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, iodine, iron, and zinc are present in sufficient amounts. In addition, seaweeds contains many trace elements. They also contain vitamins as vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), B1, B2, B6, niacin, vitamin C, pantothenic acid, folic acid and trace amounts of vitamin B12.
