Our Naturopaths Say

Kelp, a brown seaweed, is widely regarded as the best natural, most concentrated source of iodine – an essential nutrient for human health – specifically linked to immunity, thyroid, brain, ovarian and breast health.


This kombu seaweed is harvested from the North Island of NZ, dried naturally to preserve nutrients and tested for contaminants in accordance with the ANZ Food Code.
Kombu is essentially kelp seaweed, which has been laid flat to dry in a particular way.   The strips tend to have more intense flavour than the leaves. These are made from the stipe of the kelp seaweed.

You may notice the white powder which sits on a kombu leaf or strip…. this is the result of the amino acid, glutamine, which naturally rises to the surface as the kelp frond as it dries.  This what powder is not to be mistaken for mould. It is the very thing that gives kombu is prized flavour - great for adding to meals for a umami flavour.


Ingredients: Kelp (Ecklonia radiata) dried seaweed 100%.


Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Seal securely once opened – seaweeds are hygroscopic and will absorb moisture from the atmosphere around them.

Uses: Kombu offers a vegan or vegetarian source of umami* flavour and is a very popular ingredient in Japanese cooking.  Add nutritious, flavourful Kombu seaweed to infuse stocks and soups, or add umami flavour to your sauces.  Infuse drinks for a unique umami flavour which is brimming with micronutrients, minerals and vitamins.
If you have any left over, use it to water your house plants or for a DIY facial as it’s full of nutrients and minerals – your skin will thank you for it!

Prepare: Soak a Kombu strip or leaf in tepid water and gradually warm the water (don’t boil it), allowing the nutrients and flavour to seep into the water.  Then use this flavourful, nutrient enriched infused water as the base of your stock or broth. Make up a broth or stock and freeze for future use.
