The Core Story
Over 20 years ago, Dr Pia Winberg was motivated to design sustainable solutions to marine food production. She found that seaweed was the missing link in creating a circular economy food production from the oceans. Then Pia developed the technology to capture rogue nutrients like CO2 and nitrogen in the coastal zone. Seaweed reoxygenates the oceans, buffers against acidity, and balances nutrients.
In doing so, Pia realised what a nutritional dynamite seaweed was, and for the last 14 years has been showing how seaweed fills the gap for so many missing nutrients in our diets, some of them able to overcome global health challenges such as inflammation, trace element deficiencies, and to deliver more protein to the world than a cattle farm.
Do you know which seaweeds offer what health benefits though? With 20 years of research in the production of different seaweeds and how they are important to human health, PhycoHealth does this for you. By including a bit of seaweed in your breakfast, snacks and meal routines, you don’t have to try too hard.
People Saving the Planet
I try to keep my health up to speed with a busy life, by making sure I get some seaweed in at least one meal a day. I love the Mediterranean diet, and so getting seaweed in my pasta is my favorite way to save the world. It really feels like the world can be changed through a hearty bowl.
As a chef, I got to test challenging foods throughout my career. But nothing prepared me for the diversity of ways we can eat seaweed everyday. But my passion is sourdough, and combining
seaweed with sourdough just ticks all my boxes. Saving the world through my passion for food!
Growing up with a mother who
had seaweed all over the house, left
me with little choice than to start
being creative with it. I invented
Phettucccine when I was 15; in the
kitchen with our pasta maker. Now
Fedora pasta make it for us thank
