Seaweed Burger

Marine algae for Asian palates

Seaweed Burger - marine algae for Asian palates

Seaweeds are found throughout the world’s oceans and seas and
none is known to be poisonous. Many are good to eat and are
considered a great delicacy in many Asian countries. Seaweeds are
used in many maritime regions for industrial applications and as
a fertiliser. The major direct use of these plants as food is in Japan,
China and Korea, and in the Indian Ocean where seaweed
cultivation has become a major coastal industry. The main
food species grown by aquaculture in these countries are Nori
or Zicai (Porphyra, a red alga), Kombu, Kunbu or Haidai
(Laminaria or Saccharina: brown algae) and
Wakame (Undaria, also a brown alga).

Industrial utilisation of seaweed is mostly centred on the
extraction of phycocolloids (marine hydrocolloids), and, to a
much lesser extent, fine biochemicals. Fermentation and
pyrolysis, and the use of seaweed as biofuels are not an option on
an industrial scale at present, but are possible options for the
future, particularly as conventional fossil fuels run out.
Seaweeds are being used in cosmetics, and as organic fertilisers.
They have the potential to be much more widely used as a
source of long- and short-chained biochemicals with medicinal and
industrial uses. Marine algae may also be used as energy-collectors
and potentially useful substances may be extracted by
fermentation and pyrolysis. Seaweed extracts appear in the
oddest of places - you most likely have eaten some sort of
seaweed extract in the last 24 hours as many processed foods
such as yoghurt, health drinks, chocolate milk, and even the
highest-quality German beers contain seaweed polysaccharides
such as agars, carrageenans and alginates. Seaweed baths
have been popular in Ireland and Britain since Edwardian times,
and seaweed wraps and treatments have become more poular
in the last few years.
