the upwelling of the mineral rich cold Antarctic waters of the Benguela
seaweed undergoes the South African patented "Cell Burst"
process. The Ecklonia Maxima, freshly harvested by divers, undergoes
this cell bursting technique, releasing, but not denaturing, the
precious minerals, amino acids, trace elements and vitamins, that
are trapped within extremely tough cell walls. The process obviates
the use of heat, freezing or dehydration, all of which are factors
that destroy the components of organic plant life. This process
is unique in the world.
For some applications
it is desirable to use a dry powder instead of a fresh seaweed.
For this application sundried Ecklonia Maxima undergoes a series
of micronisation until the particles are the smallest that can be
