The agriculture sector uses seaweed as a component in pesticides, horticulture, and fertilizers. The food industry uses seaweed extract in the making of different snacks because of its health benefits. Seaweed extracts help in reducing the cholesterol level, improving digestion, and weight loss that makes it an important and effective part of dietary food.

The rising adoption of vegan products have been witnessed over the last few years.
