The aim of the SeaFeed project was to develop and standardize the action method of seaweed based on the treatment of lactic acid bacteria and other fermentation microorganisms.

The lactic acid bacteria break down polysaccharides in the seaweed, making it more digestible and usable as a feed supplement rich in oligosaccharides and polyphenols with a variety of bioactivity and prebiotic properties.
