A type of seaweed that grows in the Northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans, bladderwrack is a nourishing superfood not regularly consumed by most. The main stem of bladderwrack, known as the thallus, is the part used for nutritional applications. The thallus has air-filled "bladders" to help it float — hence the name! Particularly rich in iodine, bladderwrack supports healthy thyroid function and overall health.
Our bladderwrack comes from the Gulf of Maine, where it grows on a remote rocky shore along with a variety of other seaweeds. Our bladderwrack is certified organic, sustainably harvested, and, like all our ingredients, meets our strict purity standards for heavy metals, radiation, and other microbiological concerns.
