Sea Spaghetti is a prolific brown seaweed from the North Atlantic. The blades (seaweed leaves) look like long narrow whips in a shape reminiscent of noodles. Once reconstituted, the texture of Sea Spaghetti seaweed is that of ‘al dente’ pasta. The colour may vary from dark brown, khaki to olive-green, depending on location, season and maturity of the plant. Sea Spaghetti is mostly sold dried in lengths which taste a bit like biltong.
Sea Spaghetti is currently imported from Brittany in France and is tested for contaminants.
