So, what is alga?

Alga, also known as seaweed, is a versatile and nutritious ingredient that has been used in cooking for centuries. Alga comes in a variety of forms, including dried, fresh, and powdered, and is commonly used in Asian and European cuisines. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, alga is known to boost the immune system, improve heart health, and aid in digestion. Alga is also a sustainable food source, as it can be grown quickly and requires little to no fertilizer or land. Its unique flavor and texture make it a popular addition to dishes such as salads, sushi, soups, and stews.
