Seagreens bread

This recipe was sent in By Jan Booth who also makes soaps using Seagreens. Check out to find out more about her soaps.

To make the bread :

1 tsp yeast
475g honey & sunflower seed flour ( or any good quality flour of your choice)
11/2 tsb sugar
25g butter
11/4 tsp Seagreens Culinary Ingredient (200g jar -
320ml water (tepid to activate yeast)

Follow bread maker instructions and add to the bowl in the given order. This is a medium basic recipe and I set to dark crust.

If you don't have a bread maker, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl until the dough has slightly sticky texture. Tip out and knead to stretch the gluten. The dough is ready when it bounces back after being stretched which normally takes around 5 minutes of kneading. Put the dough back in the bowl and cover with oiled cling film in a warm place (airing cupboards are idea) for about 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size. 
Preheat the oven to 180 C or Gas Mark 6. Lightly grease a loaf tin and place the dough in the tin then into the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when the bottom is tapped.

The Natural Products Show Sweden

This week Simon, MD of Seagreens is in Sweden at the Natural Products Show. The show has a variety of exhibitors with products for health and nutritional supplementation and for food ingredients and cooking.

Seagreens has developed a range of products to enable the easy and convenient addition of their organic, dried and milled seaweed into the diet. Seagreens Culinary Ingredient adds flavour as well as being an effecive salt replacement.  A diet high in salt is known to increase the risk of cardiovasulcar diseases (high blood pressure, strokes, heart disease). As such, Seagreens provides a salty flavour without the high sodium levels and increases the nutritional value of meals. Seagreens also contains a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals to support health.

Recently, Eat Balanced has launched their range of nutritionally balanced pizzas which are available in Asda stores and contain Seagreens in the pizza base. The pizzas are a balanced meal containing the right proportions of fat, carbohydrate and protein. To find out more visit

Seagreens  is also available in capsule form which can be taken as a supplement and may benefit a variety of conditions including:

  • weight management
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • digestive conditions such as IBS
Research has demonstrated that Seagreens species could be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of many other diseases and conditions. The product is allergen free, organic and kosher certified and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Visit the Seagreens Healthcare Summary for more information

Due to the intensive farming procedures which are followed in this country, the nutritional quality of our food has decreased significantly over the past 50 years. A teaspoon of Seagreens Culinary Ingredient contains more iron than a plate of broccoli.

Eat Balanced's Seagreens Pizza

This week, Asda have started stocking some of the Eat Balanced pizzas which contain Seagreens. They have been developed by the Eat Balanced team to create a nutritious pizza which tastes great and, as Seagreens is from a sustainable source, it is environmentally friendly too.
The pizza bases have had half the salt replaced with Seagreens, which reduces sodium levels and adds additional nutrients to offer a more nutritional product. Seagreens is Human Food Quality Seaweed TM and contains over 70 different vitamins and minerals which are needed by the body.  It has a salty flavour but is much lower in sodium than salt (sodium chloride). It is sodium which is believed to have the detrimental effects on health (see previous blog post).  Pizzas are naturally quite high in salt due to the cheese on the topping and so by replacing salt with Seagreens, the sodium levels are very much reduced.

Not only does Seagreens add nutritional benefits, it also tastes great and has a nutty flavour which adds depth to the pizza flavour. Eat Balanced pizzas have been designed with nutritionists to create a pizza which is actually healthy and creates a balanced meal all in one product. They are higher in fibre, vitamins and minerals than standard pizzas. Each pizza contains just the right amount of salt, protein and carbohydrates along with the added nutritional benefits from Seagreens.

This is a pizza you can eat guilt free.
