Typical applications

More common under the names sea lettuce, gutweed or grass kelp, Ulva intestinalis is a green alga part of the Ulva genus. This species of green algae has a yellow-green to bright or dark green colour and a intestin-like appearance, therefore its name.

Like most of the Ulva genus, this species can generally be found almost all over the world and is consumed in numerous ways by many human beings.

Due to its great variety of micro and macro nutrients, the sea grass is a nourishing source for both humans and animals. It shows a considerable amount of protein, dissolvable dietary fibers, and a range of vitamins and minerals and iron. Therefore it is no suprise that Ulva is being used as an additive for animal feed.

It has also been suggested to use it to extract possible molecules of interest for medicine or industry, or to use it as a bioindicator species.

The powder is commonly used for food and dietary supplements. 

This product is available in the following forms: Ulva intestinalis powder, Ulva intestinalis flakes and Ulva intestinalis dried raw algae. This product is also available as a non-organic variant.

Green algae Ulva intestinalis is a rich source of nutrients, proteins and peptides. The extract promotes the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid by human dermal fibroblasts.
