Great Eastern Sun, Pacific Kombu, Dried Seaweed, 1.76 oz (50 g)17 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.

Emerald Cove Silver Grade Pacific Kombu is harvested from the cold waters off the north shore of the Shandong Peninsula of China, near Korea. It is cultivated on rope nets spread between posts planted in shallow areas of the sea bed, where it naturally attaches itself directly from the sea water. After harvest, Kombu is laid out to dry slowly and naturally in the sun, and is then packaged. This nutritious brown algae is used in a wider variety of Japanese dishes than any other seaweed and is prized for its flavor-enhancing qualities as well as its ability to make beans more tender and easier to digest. It has a sweet, delicious flavor and is most often used to produce a flavorful liquid called "Dashi", a multipurpose stock for soups, stews, and sauces. This simple dish is the first step in the preparation of many traditional Japanese and other Asian recipes.
To prepare, rinse Kombu briefly in running water and wipe lightly with a damp sponge or cloth. Do not remove the white minerals on the surface, as these are the glutamic salts which help make Kombu a valued flavoring agent in most recipes. Kombu need not be soaked.
