Our flavoured kelp seasoning range is made with New Zealand harvested kelp from the North Island. All seaweed has been tested for contaminants in accordance with the ANZ Food Standards Code.
We blend it and it is packed in our own food grade facility in Auckland. It contains local and imported ingredients, where we are unable to source locally.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Seaweeds are hygroscopic (absorb moisture from the atmosphere around them) so please seal securely once opened.
Allergens: MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF: Crustacea, Molluscs.
Warning: Contains naturally occurring iodine. Excessive consumption may exceed recommended daily dietary intakes which could have adverse effects.
How to Use Kelp Seasoning
How to use flavoured kelp seasonings in your kitchen
Just use our flavoured kelp seasoning range as you would use any seasoning in your kitchen. Many use it to replace regular table salt. Some suggestions are:
- Chilli – Add a little heat and rich umami flavour – use as a rub or salt replacement before, during or after cooking for added nutrients and flavour in your food – it is particularly good with prawns, in a marinade and roasted vegetables.
- Garlic – Add delicious garlic and rich umami flavour at any stage of your meal preparation – use as a rub or salt replacement – it is particularly good with guacamole, soups, stews, and stir fries.
- Lemon – Add zest and a rich umami flavour – it is particularly good with chicken, fish and guacamole.
If you prefer a raw, unprocessed product try our plain kelp seasoning or kelp powder. Do check our recipe section for inspiration on using kelp powder in your food. We have a wide range of other products containing New Zealand Kelp.
A word of warning: Kelp offers an insane amount of naturally occurring iodine. Please pay attention to the serving size suggestions on pack and consult a health care professional if you have concerns about your health or further questions about iodine. Each person’s iodine tolerance is unique.
Harvesting, testing, packing, recylcing
How we harvest, test and pack our flavoured kelp range
Pacific Harvest specialises in seaweed, and has been trusted by the nutritional community since 2002. We test all our kelp for contaminants in external labs, before packing them by hand in our food grade facility in Auckland.
We recently removed the zip lock from our refill bags to reduce the amount of overall plastic in the bag. Please use the resealable sticker we provide to keep moisture out.
Recycling our flavoured kelp seasoning packaging
We recently added cardboard boxes to our range to ensure the stores who stock these products can stand them on shelf as the pouches we previously used fell over constantly! The cardboard also provides protection for light sensitive seaweeds. Please pop the boxes into your worm farm, or in kerb side cardboard recycling.
The plastic pouch in the refill box and bulk bag can be recycled through soft plastic recycling schemes. Ideally we’d not use plastic but as seaweeds are hygroscopic (attract moisture) we need to ensure we can keep the seaweeds food safe. Compostable options don’t currently provide adequate moisture barriers.
Our jars are reusable, or refillable. If you don’t have a need for them, please discard in your household recycling. Please read more on our packaging journey here.
