The Flinders University Centre for Marine Bioproducts Development and CSIRO Health & Biosecurity are working together to explore the potential of an under-utilised nutrient-rich Australian brown seaweed as a source of supplements for health and wellness markets, with a focus on Asia where acceptability of seaweed products is high and where Australian-sourced natural ingredients are prized.

Our ability to isolate components of the seaweed enables us to formulate mixes of nutrients that meet consumer needs. Our initial goal is to develop a multi-mineral non-dairy drink containing seaweed ingredients and which supplies high levels of calcium, magnesium and other beneficial micronutrients.
