The drying process is done under low heat to protect and retain important enzymes and delicate chemical compounds.
All of our products are high in vitamins and minerals and are suitable for vegetarian, vegan and raw food diets.
Sweet Kelp / Royal Kombu
Sweet Kelp is a fat free food that is rich in dietary and soluble fiber, iodine, magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Sweet Kelp is closely related to Japanese kombu, and is also known as royal kombu or Neptune's belt. In Icelandic, we call it beltisþari.
Sweet kelp has a sweeter taste than other types of kelp. It is an excellent flavor enhancer and has the ability to make the food it is cooked with softer and more digestible. Kelp can be wrapped around fish and chicken, baked or steamed. It is very useful as a seasoning for soups, stews, sauces and vegetable dishes.
For best cooking results, soak the kelp in water for 10 minutes and simmer for 40 minutes.
Sweet kelp/royal kombu (laminaria saccharina)
May contain small shells or stone particles.
Keep in a cool, dry place after opening.

I add this to my bone broth and soups to get added nutrition and a great umami flavour.
I'm Ordering More Of These :)

I've been looking for sea weed/kelp to add to my blended salads. I've tried many different varieties, but this is the best I've tasted so far. It is mild and sweet, and comes in convenient 'format'. I firs chop them into smaller pieces with a scissors and store in airtight container. When I'm going to use it I use a coffee grinder to make it into flour.

grind it to flake size bits and use it on salads or in stews. In sauerkraut or kimchi it can be used both ground and whole.
