Humans use brown seaweed or algae commercially for food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and in the many sciences. Algin is found within the cell walls of the brown seaweed, it is used as an emulsifier in many food products. Fucans, the slimy stuff found on kelps, have potential medicinal uses. People also collect brown seaweed to treat then sell as fertilizer for agricultural crops. Brown algae yield alginic acid, which is used to stabilize emulsions and suspensions; it is found in products such as syrup, ice cream, and paint.

Hope it helps!
