SeaEssense has a mild salty flavor, like the essence of the ocean, and can be used as a salt-substitute. SeaEssense has 85% less sodium than salt!
SeaEssense is so finely milled, you don’t need much to add savory flavor and a burst of nutrients and fiber to food and drinks. As with all good things, moderation is the key! Ideally you should use 1-2 teaspoons per day (per person) in your diet to avoid too much iodine. You want enough to avoid deficiency, but don’t over-do!
