"Kelp" is a name commonly used for many seaweeds. Our Sea Seasonings Kelp Granules are a blend of Alaria esculenta and Ascophyllum nodosum, hand-harvested from wild beds in the north Atlantic, and dried at mild temperatures to retain enzymes and nutrition. They contain no additives, and every step from harvest to milling is Certified Organic. Use Sea Seasonings to replace salt in soups, stir fries, salads and dips. Kelp Granules impart umami, the savory and mysterious fifth taste, to any dish. Sea vegetables are rich in umami because they naturally contain glutamic acid, used by almost every lifeform to synthesize protein. One serving of Kelp Granules is also an excellent source of iodine (1,092% RDI), essential for thyroid function and body metabolism, and they contain trace ocean minerals and bioactive compounds not found in many land vegetables. We hope you enjoy this ocean bounty!
