Abstract: Fucus spiralis Linnaeus, known in Azores as "Fava-do-mar'' is an edible brown macroalga (Ochrophyta (Phaeophyceae)) which can be found on rocks at upper intertidal leveis, where it forms a patchy zone. It is the only member of the genus Fucus that can be found in Azores and its receptacles are eaten as a local delicacy. Nutritionally, it is very rich in fiber (crude content 63.9% dw) contains important minerais Na, K, Mg, Ca and low content in lipids (5.2%). This edible seaweed is also rich in secondary metabolites, such as phlorotannins, sterols and fatty acids, which are associated with several biological activities. From the human health point ofview, all the above mentioned constituents are of extreme importance and show the potential of F. spiralis as a nutraceutical product. […].
