Design attractive labelling to show health benefits of seaweed
strengthen gut mucus (which protects the gut wall),
slows down digestion (so you feel fuller for longer)
makes food release its energy more slowly
high in fibre.
good bacteria in the gut A study of the faecal flora of Japanese women (well, someone’s got to do it) showed that high seaweed intake increases the good bacteria in the gut.
reduces wind The enzymes in kombu, which you can add in dried form to soups and stews, help pre-digest pulses, which in turn reduce wind.
