Does Simply Seaweed contain any heavy metals?

Yes.

All wild-harvested seaweed and kelp products contain some level of heavy metals, due to ocean contamination and naturally occurring minerals.

We only harvest from clean waters to ensure minimal levels, and our end product is heavy metal tested to ensure that any detected quantities are within safe limits as per the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ 2002). Additionally, our seaweed is certified organic which enforces even more stringent regulations of allowable trace levels of heavy metals.

Our Nutrition Data discloses the levels of heavy metals.
