    Default B12 in Gracilaria / Limu: "More vitamin B12 than any land plant found on Earth"

    http://www.hawaii.edu/reefalgae/publ...limu/index.htm
    Two Gracilaria species, limu manauea and ogo (Gracilaria parvisipora) are used interchangeably. Limu manauea is 4"-6" tall, with cylindrical branches dark rose to light pink; ogo is taller (10"-12") with slightly flattened branches. It is illegal to gather reproductive plants (with dark "bumps"). Hawaiian preparation involves lightly salting this limu; this species is also enjoyed by Japanese, Koreans, and Filipinos.
    Limu are served as vegetables in stews, poke, and salads; as condiments, adding zest to the meals; and are an important source of minerals, and vitamins, including vitamins A, C, B12, and riboflavin.

    Gracilaria also contain high level of vitamins and more vitamin B12 than any land plant found on Earth.

    Who has more info about this? I've never heard about Gracilaria before!
    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.
