    Arame is virtually fat-free, low in calories, and rich in essential minerals, vitamins, protein, and important trace elements that are often lacking in land vegetables due to soil demineralization.

    Arame and other sea vegetables contain more minerals than any other kind of food. Analysis has shown that a wide range of minerals account for up to 38 percent of their dry weight.
