Seaweed Sourdough Recipe – Easy to Eat
Eating Pacific Sea Moss in gel capsules is a convenient way of consuming the 3 to 6 grams of seaweed that appears to provide a range of benefits. But what if you have trouble swallowing tablets. Or you don’t want to consume Pacific SeaMoss chocolate either purchased or put into a delicious recipe; or chocolate gives you migranes?
Chris decided to make Seaweed Sourdough
Chris used his own recipe, but we have found some detailed instructions on the web. Check out this one from Homestead and Chill. It is very detailed on the process. Good for a read. All Chris did is swap out the salt with Pacific Seamoss Powder.
- Great taste
- Eating 2 or 3 slices per day provides your 5g of seaweed per day
- Swaps out the salt (Sodium) with Potassium. Tastes the same, but most are K deficient.
Pacific Seamoss powder will provide the following minerals and vitamins
- Potassium: 30% of RDA (Recommended daily allowance)
- Vitamin A: 30%RDA
- Vitamin C: 30%
- Vitamin B – especially B1, B3 and B6: 10%
- Iodine: 15%
- Iron: 9%
- Magnesium: 6%
Seaweed is also full of trace elements such as selenium (elements in this table)
