Fucus spiralis, Porphyra sp. and Osmundea pinnatifida are macroalgae consumed as food in some of the Azorean Islands, but little information is available on their nutritional value. This paper presents information on the nutritional aspects in terms of proteins (9.71-24.82%), lipids (5.23-8.88%), soluble carbohydrates (17.59-25.37%), ash (22.31-38.55%), minerals (0.96-1.82 for Na/K ratios) and fat soluble vitamins A (1.20-1.41%) and E (4.86-51.14%) contents on dry weight basis.
