Kombu is packed with nutrients and fibre – and is a natural salt alternative – adds deliciousness to dishes.
Known as the superfood of the sea, this Kombu kelp is packed with nutrients and fibre. It also is a naturally smooth flavour enhancer so makes a great alternative to salt. It is pure umami – which translates from Japanese as ‘savoury deliciousness’. Add generously into soups, stews and sauces. Mineral-rich, it is an amazing source of iodine and is one of the best vegetable sources of calcium.
How do I enjoy Kombu Kelp flakes?
Kombu is best used in cooking, rather than as a final seasoning: think of it as the stock cube of the sea. Whether you’re making traditional lentil soup or dashi stock for ramen, kelp is a fantastic natural flavour enhancer.
A tablespoon of Kombu will soften grains and pulses, and give stews and sauces body. Try it in mushroom risotto, ratatouille or when soaking dried beans for an unbeatable depth of flavour.
Stir a teaspoon of Kombu into your favourite herbal tea to boost your energy and immune system.
