Summary

• Effectivity might differ depending on the seaweed type, harvest season and processing method. Brown and red seaweed species may be better than green.
• Several commercial seaweed products can be used, and it is important to ask for documentation of effect before relying on e.g. effect on diarrhoea.
• High levels of macro and micro minerals have to be taken into account when composing diets with seaweed.
• Many seaweed extracts are available, which may not be suitable for organic production.
