The marine-based technology in Maritime and related products (e.g., Accomplish MAX, Terramar) is produced with the same species of kelp (Ascophylum nodosum) used by most other major seaweed companies. The key difference is the extraction process. Our marine-based technology in Maritime and related products is manufactured using a biological extraction process that completely digests the kelp source.
This offers superior product mixing and handling characteristics (i.e., the end-product is homogenous and flowable) and ensures a broad range of bioactive components in the product. Other kelp-based products are manufactured using chemical and physical (cold-press) extraction methods, which are unable to offer a fully digested kelp product.
