Algae or algae are the configurations of algae that have evolved in the sea. They are a food source for ocean life and their color ranges from green to red to brown to black. Seaweed is found around rocky coastlines globally and is commonly eaten in Asian countries like China, Korea, and Japan. It is adaptable and can be used in food products like stews and soups, sushi, smoothies, salads and supplements. In addition, seaweed is highly nutritional and beneficial to health.

Seaweed contains an abundant amount of trace elements and minerals. It often involves a greater amount of these nutrients than other foods. Depending on where they are grown, the nutrient content of seaweed can differ. So different types will contain varying amounts of nutrients. Usually one cup of seaweed provides 5 grams of protein. Iodine content can vary greatly from class to class, but a serving of seaweed can easily contain iodine that satisfies the one-day benchmark. Some claim that seaweed is an important plant source of vitamin B12, found in poultry, meat, dairy products and eggs. But yet, one can wonder if the form of vitamin B12 is functional in humans. Ultimately, seaweed contains abundant antioxidants. It also contains a sufficient amount of sulfated polysaccharides, which are promising plant compounds that contribute to the health benefits of seaweed.

By origin, the red type dominates the market as they are abundant in minerals, proteins, trace elements, vitamins and essential fatty acids. Additionally, red seaweed is eaten raw in salads, condiments, soups, and meals. By application, animal feed is said to have the fastest growth attributed to the use of seaweed extract for feed supplements that help animals improve their gut by eliminating the presence of all harmful microbes.

By region, Asia Pacific emerges with a dominant market. The unmanageable human population in the Asian region will drive up human protein prices.
