Description & Ingredients

Sun-dried whole leaf Bladderwrack from the cold waters of the Atlantic.

Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus L.) is an edible seaweed, especially popular in Asian countries. It is a known source of iodine as well as other minerals. Bladderwrack is a brown seaweed that grows on rocky shores in areas with cold and temperate climate, mostly at North American and Western European shores of the North Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean (Verhelst 2010).

Fucus vesiculosus is a small brown seaweed measuring 20 to 100 centimeters in length. Their flat thallus branches dichotomously. Oval with air filled bubbles in the membraneous parts make the seaweed float vertically. This seaweed is harvested at the start of summer (EMA assessment report, 2014).
