BBC Food Programme - Seaweed, a forgotten food?


In some cultures, seaweeds have long been an important and treasured food. However, it is not an ingredient currently found in many British kitchen cupboards.


With a rise in scientific interest into the unique compounds within seaweeds, an appreciation of its unique flavour properties, and trials of its uses as a food fortificant, BBC Food Correspondent, Sheila Dillon asks if seaweed is a food of the future?


This podcast was initially broadcast on BBC Radio 4, on 7 May 2012, as part of the BBC Food Programme series.
