Last updated by susan at 2015/5/22
Facai, a kind of alga, is named for its hair-looking shape. The alga grows on the dry grassland, desert and low hills in the provinces like Gansu, Shanxi, Qinghai and Xinjiang. Facai is Ningxia's most famous local product. Therefore, Ningxia is not only the major production region, but also the main distributing center of Facai.
The protein content of Facai is more than 20%, much higher than that of meat, milk and egg. At the same time, it also contents calcium, phosphorus, iron, fat, salt and other vitamins. Facai sounds like "becoming rich" in Chinese so it can be served as a good present for your relatives and friends.
In addition, Facai has many medicinal efficacies, such as helping digest greasy food, and relieving hypertension and so on.
