Kelp is a generic name for over 300 species of large brown algae that belong to the order Laminariales. Our Kelp is Saccharina latissima (formerly known as Laminaria longicruris), also known as "Wild Atlantic Kombu," because of its similarity to Japanese Kombu.
Low sodium Kelp Granules (Now a blend) are a convenient way to get your sea veggies. Kelp granules are "salty" yet low sodium, thanks to the rich complement of potassium, magnesium, and other mineral salts. Kelp granules are an especially rich source of potassium, iron, iodine, Vitamin B-6, Riboflavin, and dietary fiber. Kelp also contains a natural substance, glutamic acid, that enhances flavor and tenderizes. Phytochemicals in kelp have been shown to absorb and eliminate radioactive elements and heavy metal contaminants from our bodies. Sprinkle on soups, salads, tofu, pasta, stir-fries, dressings, dips, sauces, breads, tabouli. Get the nutritional benefits of sea veggies, and skip the table salt.
Our kelp granules are a blend of Alaria esculenta and Ascophyllum nodosum. They are sustainably harvested, OCIA Certified Organic and a Raw Food. We also voluntarily test for heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides, PCB's, fuel oil, and microbiological contaminants.
