Carbohydrates

Seaweed contains a large amount of carbohydrate as structural, storage, and functional polysaccharides, and the total carbohydrate content may ranges from 20% to 76% of dry weight (Holdt and Kraan, 2011) depending on the species. Though the carbohydrate content in seaweed is considerably high, its greater portion is available as polysaccharide dietary fiber, which is not taken up by the human body. Therefore, seaweed is not a good source of carbohydrate in terms of bioavailability. Little, but absorb-able, forms of carbohydrate present in seaweed comprise glucose, man-nose, and galactose.
