  • &quot;Protein content in seaweed varies somewhat. It is low in brown algae at 5-11% of dry matter, but comparable in quantitative terms to legumes at 30-40% of dry matter in some species of red algae. Green algae, which are still not harvested much, also have a significant protein content, i.e., up to 20% of dry matter. Spirulina, a micro-alga, is well known for its very high content, i.e., 70% of dry matter.&quot;

    24. 24. Nutrients removed- 1/4th to 1/6th of all nutrients in brown rice
    25. 25. More processed so takes more resources to produce
