Company Information

Algamar is diversifying the American diet to include nutritious and sustainable protein options that reduce overall carbon & biological footprint of how we feed or are fed.

in 1996 Algamar was founded in Spain by 2 brothers, pioneers in sustainable hand harvesting of wild seaweeds in the coast of Galicia. Hand harvesting and hand selection of fresh and dried seaweed guarantees a high quality product and supports local communities with sustainable employment.

What do Algamar Products Stand For?

Best organic quality from sustainable harvest. The wild seaweed that Algamar uses for its products is harvested by hand on the cleanest stretch of Spain's Atlantic coast in Galicia according to the Algae Utilization Plan. They are brushed while still in the water and then gently dried at a temperature of below 42 degrees Celsius. This guarantees the highest organic quality and a harvest that is kind to nature.

Versatility. We don't see our algae as exotic food for special occasions, but as a completely normal and versatile part of a healthy, modern diet. Our seaweed can be used in almost any dish. Whether salads, pasta, together with vegetables, with casseroles, pizza or quiche - algae add a little pinch of the sea and lots of healthy nutrients everywhere!

The ideal addition to a healthy diet. Seaweed is a natural source of protein and fiber. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements and natural iodine. The indigestible sodium alginate and high-quality dietary fiber in seaweed also help to detoxify our bodies. They therefore offer a high added value for healthy nutrition.

Particularly suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets. More and more people today are opting for a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. If you pay attention to balance, you can eat nutritious and healthy food without animal products. Of course, the environment also plays a major role: Anyone who eats vegan food conserves resources and thus lives sustainably and environmentally conscious.
