SEA­WEED: THE NEW SALT?

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Eat­ing bread with sea­weed in­stead of salt will help our hearts and our waist­lines, and our taste­buds may be none the wiser. A re­cent UK study found con­sumers couldn’t tell when their bread con­tained sea­weed in­stead of salt. Sea­weed con­tains a frac­tion of the sodium found in reg­u­lar salt, and ear­lier stud­ies have shown that sea­weed’s fi­bre con­tent also re­duces the amount of fat ab­sorbed by the body by 75 per cent.
