"Kelp" is a common name that includes many seaweed species. Sea vegetables contain a wide array of minerals and trace elements absorbed readily from seawater. They deliver these minerals in colloidal, chelated forms for easier absorption in the body. This kelp blend (Alaria esculenta and Ascophyllum nodosum) is sustainably harvested in the nutrient-dense Gulf of Maine using Organic Standards for wild sea vegetables. They are then dried and milled-nothing added or removed. Both are "brown seaweeds:, rich in minerals, iodine, and a host of bioactive compounds including fucoidans, antioxidants and alginates.
With this kelp blend, you benefit from their complementary qualities and a diversity of seaweeds in your diet. For those familiar with our previous Kelp Granules, you may notice a different flavor and texture, a less salty taste and more moderate iodine levels. Please enjoy bringing the bounty of the ocean to your table.
Sprinkle this blend in place of salt; add to soups, stir fries, salads and dips.

This product was found to contain high levels of Arsenic - around 80 ppm (not ppb)
I sprinkle this on my soups and salads for extra iodine. I barely notice the taste but I sure feel the difference. I have much greater energy during the day and sleep better at night. Great price, too. This is a keeper.
