Hydrilla Verticillata - New Superfood?

edited January 2011 in Health & Beauty

This aquatic weed is supposed to be packed with nutrients including an amazing amount of calcium, pantothenic acid, and B12! Seems like a pretty good alternative to nutritional yeast. The problem is that it’s supposed to be a very invasive plant in many waterways, so it gets tends to get sprayed with chemicals. I’m not sure if it’s dried at the appropriate temperatures to be considered raw either. Anyone know anything about this plant and/or supplement?
