The German Start-Up company Viva Maris GmbH has the vision to bring the long forgotten seaweed from the sea back to Europe. These are macro-algae like “Sugar kelp” which grows in a natural way in the norther part of the North Atlantic. The target is, to make this natural algae, which is rich on vitamine and minerals available to consumers in the western hemisphere. Seaweed got forgotten within the last years, but it is one of the oldest food products known. And algae are a high-quality and healthy food with unique taste qualities like “Umami”. Not to mention that they are one of the growing back resources at all.
For all our organic UNDINES Gold ALGAE products we use only the pure kelp, no kelp essences or substrates and also no micro-algae. This is because we think and act environmentally sustainable and we do not want to use natural resources for the growth of the algae. Our macro-kelp growth up in aquacultures or in the wild breeding and uses therefore no valuable resources (e.g., fresh water, energy, etc.). And we do not use algae from Asia.
In our today's modern western civilization nobody can imagine a pure alga on the plate. In Asia seaweeds are a basic ingredient in the daily menu and a part of their tradition. Many years ago algae was also used in our civilization as a food, for example with the Irish seafarers, as a vitamin and mineral source. Therefore we integrate these valuable algae into everyday organic food products which everybody uses on a daily basis. And the consumer has no pure alga on the plate, but is introduced slowly to algae to change his consumer habits and has the benefit of the vitamine and minerals.
The organic UNDNES Gold ALGAE products are vegan or vegetarian and produced in a natural way in Germany. First of all because the algae has important vitamine and minerals as well as iodine and selenium, which are essential for the human body. Significant for us is that we pay attention in an environmentally sustainable production for the products and we do not use artificial ingredients (e.g. taste amplifier, colorings, preservatives, etc). Also we use no palm oil in our products.
We work with the nature, for a healthy and environmentally sustainable food product.
