Seaweed has a long history of being used as food, most notably in Asian countries. In Europe, one example of the traditional use of seaweed as food is Irish Moss, which is used to make a pudding by boiling it in milk and straining it, before adding sugar and different flavorings. In recent years, consumers’ favorable perception of seaweed has been reinforced as it is being hailed a highly nutritious food, thanks to the many healthy nutrients it contains.
