Resumo: Fucus spiralis, Porphyra sp. and Osmundea pinnatifida are macroalgae consumed as food in some of the Azorean Islands, but little information is available on their nutritional value. This paper presents information on the nutritional aspects in terms of proteins (9.71–24.82%), lipids (5.23–8.88%), soluble carbohydrates (17.59-25.37%), ash (22.31–38.55%), minerals (0.96–1.82 for Na/K ratios) and fat soluble vitamins A (1.20–1.41%) and E (4.86–51.14%) contents on dry weight basis. Fatty acid (SFA, MUFA, PUFA and n6/n3 and h/H ratios) and amino acid profiles, and antioxidant properties were also reported. All the three species contained measurable quantities of 9 of 10 essential amino acids (41.62–63.50% of the total amino acids). The regular consumption of these algae allied with the low level of seawater pollution around Azores Islands will improve human health conditions and will have a protective effect on the most common degenerative diseases.
