Northern Norway is also known as the “land of midnight sun” and thanks to these extreme condition this seaweed can develop its peculiar properties that make it unique.

Our marine ingredient Aschopyllum nodosum is  a seaweed with exceptional nutrients, that grows where the environment is pure and pristine and the sound of nature is the only audible noise. Immersed in the frigid Norwegian waters in winter and exposed continuously to the force of the sun in summer, our seaweed gathers natural elements of the highest purity and quality. We have three plants in Norway were we harvest and produce, the most northerly of which is on the only one in the world north of the Arctic Circle. One dedicated to the manufacturing of food and cosmetics ingredient, another one to animal feed and fertilizer ingredients and the last one, that is near the Arctic Circle, exclusively dedicated to the harvesting of seaweed.

Algea serves four markets: ingredients for human nutrition (food supplements and functional foods), ingredients for cosmetics, animal nutrition and fertilization. AlgeaFood products intended for human nutrition only come from seaweed harvested directly from Algea. Thanks to the presence of iodine, polyphenols, mannitol, vitamins, minerals and alginates, AlgeaFood products are ideal ingredients for functional foodstuffs and dietary supplements.
