Phytochemical Compositions of Potentially Commercial Far-East Brown Algae
- 132 Downloads
The phytochemical and carbohydrate compositions of the potentially commercial Far-East brown algae (kelps) Undaria pinnatifida and Costaria costata were compared. C. costata typically had greater contents of minerals and mannite whereas U. pinnatifida had more lipids, N-containing compounds, and fucoidan.
