Seaweed Powder

Cargill WavePure ADG logoSimplicity inspired by the seas

Seaweed has a long history of being used as food, in various parts of the world. In recent years, consumers’ favorable perception of seaweed has been reinforced. It’s being hailed as a highly nutritious food, thanks to the many healthy nutrients it contains.

WavePure® is a seaweed powder range based on native seaweed obtained without any chemical modification. It’s a unique ingredient with texturizing properties while maintaining stability in the gelled dairy dessert and imparting a neutral taste. Since it can be labeled with a reference to the familiar seaweed source, WavePure® is fully in line with growing consumer demand for label-friendly options. Cargill is working hard to ensure that WavePure® will soon also be able to benefit from the Red Seaweed Promise™ advantage
