In Response To: How much bulk bladderwrack is in, say, a level teaspoon? (Dick Hess)
I tried both the tincture and buying in bulk. The bulk bladderwrack was dry, but I do not know if it was sun-dried, oven-dried or freeze-dried. The 600-1800 mg per day is based on freeze-dried, which is the highest quality preservation (per a natural product chemist who made his company build him a freeze drier for preparing botanical specimens). The bulk lot I had (of unknown preservation process) was in flakes, which would have to be pulverized to measure out the small quantities to fit in capsules. For example, 28.35 grams equals one ounce. 1000 mg equals one gram. So a 600 mg capsule of fluffy, pulverized, freeze-dried bladderwrack contains slightly more than 0.02 ounce. That is very hard to measure consistently with anything less than pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment. There is no RELIABLE way to compare the weight measurement to a volume measurement like a teaspoon when we do not know the preservation process of the supply or how finely ground you are going to pulverise it before you put it on the teaspoon.
