Claw sheet (Shcyzimenia jonssoni) is a red algae that has only been found off the coast of Iceland. Little is known about the properties of claw bladder, but bioactive properties have been found in related species that grow abroad. This report presents the results of measurements of the composition of claw blades in terms of use in food, dietary supplements and cosmetics. The nutritional value and wholesomeness of chlorophyll were assessed, screened for the bioactivity of biochemicals and microorganisms in the chlorophyll environment. A comparison was also made of claw leaves from cultivation and nature. The results indicate that cloverleaf has similar properties to salt and could be marketed as such, ie. as an algae. Results of antioxidant and antiviral activity suggest that claw leaves contain interesting bioactivity properties that are worth exploring further. Comparison of measurements of beach claw and cultivation indicated similar characteristics.

Claw sheet (Shcyzimenia jonssoni) is a red algae that has only been found off the coast of Iceland. Little is known about the properties of klóblaðka, but bioactive properties have been found in related species that grow in other countries. This report presents the results of measurements of the composition of klóblaðka with respect to use in food, dietary supplements and cosmetics. The nutritional value and safety of klóblaðka were assessed, and the bioactivity of biological substances and microorganisms in the environment of klóblaðka was screened. A comparison was made of cloverleaf from cultivation and nature. The results indicate that klóblaðka has similar properties to dulse and could be marketed as such, ie as food. Results of antioxidant and antiviral activity suggest that klóblaðka contains interesting bioactivity properties that are worth exploring further. Comparison of measurements of klóblaðka from sampled from the coast and cultivation indicated similar characteristics.
