Seaweed Iceland, Royal Kombu, Raw, Sweet Kelp, 1.76 oz (50 g)3 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 2016
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.

Kombu is a fat free, cholesterol free food, rich in dietary and soluble fiber, iodine, magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Royal kombu grows wild and is harvested by hand from pure Icelandic waters. We dry it using renewable geothermal energy to bring you the highest quality food source with a low carbon footprint.
Royal kombu is closely related to Japanese kombu, and is also known as sweet kombu or Neptune's belt. In Icelandic, we call it beltisþari.
For best cooking results, soak the kombu in water for 10 minutes and simmer for 40 minutes.
Kombu can be wrapped around fish and chicken, baked or steamed. It is very useful as a seasoning for soups, stews, sauces and vegetable dishes.
Royal kombu (laminaria saccharina).
May contain small shells or stone particles.
Keep in a cool, dry place after opening.

iHerb Customer Reviews
this seaweed comes across in flavor just like a japanese kombu. it has subtle, rich qualities, unlike a typical, atlantic style kombu. it tastes good enough to snack right out of the bag or used as an enhancer to a hearty, miso soup. kombu is a fantastic way to get iodine into your diet, and can sometimes be more palatable to those who are new to testing out seaweed
I use this for miso soup or hot-pot broth. soak them(3x3inches) in water(2cups) and simmer (do not boil) for 40min. You can get great tasting broth!!!
