You may have read the articles that seaweed is good for you; potentially an up and coming 'super-food'. But what are the nutritious and beneficial attributes of seaweed?

  • Seaweed contains more iodine (vital for maintaining a healthy thyroid) than any other food substance
  • Seaweed is a potent source of antioxidants - important for rectifying naturally-occurring cell damage
  • Some varieties of seaweed contain iron - with boosts the immune system
  • Seaweed can help to regulate oestrogen hormone levels
  • Seaweed is high in calcium, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth
  • Seaweed helps purify and regulate blood
  • Being rich in chlorophyll, green seaweed is a detoxifier meaning it can draw out waste products
At Stag Bakeries, our range of seaweed biscuits is made with a unique blend of seaweed that is sustainably sourced from around our island. When we decided to launch our range, we just wanted to make something that depicted our island location - and for us, that naturally had to incorporate a taste of the sea! The range spent months and months in development but the hard work paid off, with both the Stornoway Water Biscuit with Seaweed and Seaweed Oatcake being given the top 3 stars at the Great Taste Awards, and the Water Biscuit going one step further, winning the acclaimed Best Scottish Speciality product. 
We do hope you've had a chance to try our popular seaweed biscuits - you can find them within the artisan food section at Marks and Spencer.
