Algae, as they contain abundant minerals and trace elements, have an alkalizing and purifying effect on the body, helping to compensate for the excess acids generated by sport, in addition to being very tasty, as it contains a large amount of salts, we could do without the addition salt in the preparation of the dish.


 The main nutritional value of the dish is energy, a complex carbohydrate that will provide us with a large amount of energy in the form of glucose, an immediate principle essential to replenish the glycogen deposits that are emptied during sports.


The mushrooms have good amounts of vitamins of group B. In particular, its contribution of vitamins B2 and B3, besides being a source of some minerals such as iodine, potassium and phosphorus.
