Making seaweed a superfood people can enjoy

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:31 pm on 23 October 2020

A joint Singapore/New Zealand project is looking at ways to unlock the beneficial nutrients in seaweed that aren't absorbed easily through digestion as well as ways to make the plants more tasty.

AgResearch senior scientist Dr Linda Samuelsson talks to Jesse about the species they are hoping to turn into a tasty superfood staple and the help they're getting from a world-class chef as well as other scientists.
