This super nutritious green seaweed is known as ulva lactuca. Ulva is the genus and lactuca means lettuce in Latin. It grows naturally along rocky, tidal shores around the world, and is very bright in color when wet. It darkens when dried and its savory, salty flavor deepens. Ocean's Balance is proud to offer Organic Sea Lettuce in both whole leaf and flake forms. Rehydrate whole leaf Sea Lettuce for use in salads (it's not called sea lettuce for nothing) and sprinkles dried flakes on soups and fish dishes.
