A SEAWORLD OF BENEFITS

IT ENRICHES

It enriches the cooking of all kinds of dishes: fish and seafood, paellas, pasta, vegetables, and so forth. Seawater enhances flavours and provides recipes with organoleptic properties.

IT THAWS

It thaws sea products more efficiently and more rapidly. It is also ideal for cleaning and handling them.

IT IMPROVES

It considerably improves the flavour, the appearance and the texture of sea foods.

IT PRESERVES BETTER AND LONGER

Mediterranea enables you to keep fish and seafood longer in excellent conditions.

MORE NUTRIENTS

Cooking with seawater increases the nutritional quality of foods since calcium, magnesium and iodine form part of its natural composition.

HEALTHIER

Cooking with seawater is healthier thanks to the fact that its composition is completely natural and that it contributes to reducing the consumption of ordinary salt with meals.

USES

DRESSING

Clean lettuce leaves with a solution of seawater (85% ordinary water - 15% seawater), your salads will be tastier and you won’t need to add salt. To enhance the sea flavour, splash a few drops of pure Mediterranea Seawater over the salad

CLEANING

Use undiluted seawater to clean and handle fish and seafood.

THAWING

Place the frozen fish or seafood in a recipient and cover it with pure Mediterranea Seawater. Leave it out of the refrigerator until it is thawed.

COOKING

Substitute the usual quantity of ordinary water for a mixture with seawater in the following proportions:

RECIPES

Seafood and vegetable tempura

Ingredients:
1 egg 
1 cup ice cold Mediterranea Seawater (150 ml)
1 cup flour
Seafood and vegetables to taste  
Vegetable oil

Directions:
Beat the egg in a bowl and add ice cold Mediterranea Seawater. Add the flour and mix gently, taking care not to over-mix the dough – the more volume it has, the better. Roll the seafood and vegetable pieces previously selected in this batter immediately. Once rolled, fry in abundant hot oil until the desired appearance is acquired.

GUARANTEE OF QUALITY

 

IMPECCABLE EXTRACTION PROCESS.

Mediterranea is pure seawater, obtained from one of the cleanest Mediterranean areas with the best marine flora. Its quality and purity are totally guaranteed thanks to the ongoing analysis of the extraction point and the exhaustive filtering of the water.

NATURAL PROPERTIES ENDORSED BY PRESTIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS.

The laboratory tests endorse the advantages of seawater in the treatment and preservation of fish and seafood. When these products are immersed in seawater, they acquire better colour and texture and smell more like the sea.
All the tests have been conducted in a European laboratory of reference in food quality and safety analysis.

“Frozen fish handled and treated in a thawing process with pure seawater improves thawing, enhances its preservation and regains its organoleptic properties more efficiently (in reference to fresh fish) in a clearly significant manner.”

RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental

Unlike fresh water, seawater is the most abundant component on the earth’s surface, a resource yet to be tapped. Mediterranea proposes the widespread use of seawater in fish shops, restaurants and private homes, thereby giving rise to a more sustainable model of consumption and contributing to the saving of fresh water.

Social

With the will to cooperate in the creation of a sustainable business sector that is more responsible and more human, Mediterranea Seawater forms part of Más Que Iniciativas a Spanish office of disability employment (CEE) and cooperates in work placement projects, offering employment to people with disabilities or those at risk from labour-social exclusion.

“Dos joves emprenedors, l’Albert i el Francesc, han muntat un negoci i comercialitzen aigua de mar. Diuen que va molt bé per cuinar, per descongelar, per exemple, gambes, i fer paella.”

Els que són de mar ho saben i ho han fet. Si es renta el peix amb aigua de mar, l’arròs surt més bo que si es neteja amb aigua de l’aixeta. També n’hi ha que l’usen per fer sortir la sorra de les cloïsses.

FAQs

¿Can seawater be used to cook or treat fish for people with high blood pressure?

Yes, because the quantity of salt deriving from the seawater in the end product once cooked will be reduced. Moreover, fish is not consumed every day nor is it consumed in very large quantities, consequent on which it is completely compatible.

Is seawater suitable for drinking?

No. Although microbiologically there are no problems, seawater has too much sodium chloride. That is not to say that small quantities of the water are harmful. True enough, there are studies that defend the benefits of ingesting small quantities of seawater, such as the studies conducted by Rene Quinton, but in any case, it cannot be used as a substitute for mineral water.
