Eden Foods, Kombu, Sea Vegetable, 2.1 oz (60 g)
By Eden Foods18 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

- Wild Hand Harvested
Eden Kombu is a wide leaf, deeper growing sea vegetable that flourishes in cold Arctic currents bathing Japan's northernmost Hokkaido island where we get the world's best wild kombu. It is always hand harvested and sun dried. We package the trimmed, central part of the leaf for its umami flavor and great texture. Highly valued for its unique food value and flavor enhancing characteristics, kombu has been known as a health food in the Far East for many centuries.
Kombu is essential to the delicious Japanese noodle broth, 'dashi', but can be added to any soup or soup stock to bring it to life. Stew it with vegetables. Pickle or deep-fry it. Pan or oven roast it and grind to a powder for a tasty and most nourishing table condiment. Sprinkle it on popcorn instead of salt as a low-sodium, delicious, value added variation.
Add a small piece to soups, stewed vegetables, and grains as they cook. One-half of a strip to a pound of dried beans tenderizes & enhances in cooking.

I was introduced to Kombu several years ago and now use it in all my soups and stews. I believe it helps with digestion, especially in chili and bean soups. Great product.
