Nutritional Evaluation of Tropical Green Seaweeds Caulerpa lentillifera and Ulva reticulata

  title={Nutritional Evaluation of Tropical Green Seaweeds Caulerpa lentillifera and Ulva reticulata},
  author={Pattama Ratana-arporn and Anong Chirapart},
Studies were conducted to evaluate nutritional qualities of two edible green seaweeds, Caulerpa lentillifera and Ulva reticulata, with a view to their utilization in human nutrition. The proximate composition, mineral and vitamin contents, free fatty acid, and amino acid profiles were investigated. Protein and ash contents were the two most abundant components in these seaweeds. Caulerpa lentillifera and Ulva reticulata contained 12.49%, 21.06% protein and 24.21%, 17.58% ash based on dry weight… CONTINUE READING
