Aquatic organisms, from microscopic to multicellular (seaweed) which form huge and visible colonies.
All algae are photoautotrophic.
To survive they need water and light, that is why they live in aquatic environments. Some are unicellular, as plankton and other pluricellular; all present chlorophyll, moreover, they have other pigments that hides it, that is why they can exist in many colours. Its length goes from just a few centimetres to various meters.
The main attraction of seaweed is its low caloric content and its high content in fibre and minerals, mainly calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iodine, iron, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, cobalt and sodium. Some varieties have high content in iodine while others, as agar seaweed contain just a little.
We can find them fresh, in salt, dehydrated, canned and powdered.
