Sprinkle this seaweed infused organic New Zealand sea salt onto your food to boost nutrients, add beautiful colour and smoky, umami flavours to your plate.
This sea salt contains Atlantic Dulse flakes (harvested from an organically certified area) and New Zealand wild harvested wakame seaweed (from the pristine ocean around the South Island of NZ). The seaweeds are dried naturally to preserve nutrients and tested for contaminants. This is a sea salt like no other – the seaweeds add an intense nutrient boost and incredible umami flavour. It has been said that salt cravings are the result of a mineral deficiency…this is one product to address just that!
The ocean has an abundance of minerals, nutrients and vitamins, many of which are depleted in our soils, so in our opinion, Sea Salt is a preferable alternative to rock salts. This size is a refill pack but if you are just starting out and prefer a smaller size to trial, start with our jar of Seaweed Salt. If you prefer less seaweed but do want the nutrient boost seaweeds add to sea salt, consider Kelp salt.
We are delighted to launch this new product into our range and hope you like it as much as we do! Colours may vary depending on seasonality.

Benefits of seaweed in sea salt?
Seaweeds are widely regarded as the best natural source of iodine – an essential nutrient for human health – specifically linked to immunity, thyroid, brain, ovarian and breast health. Iodine is an essential nutrient for the production of a hormone called thyroxin which helps to regulate many body functions. It has also been linked to apoptosis (cell death) which is critical to fighting cancer – particularly thyroid and breast cancer. This Harvard study encourages improving diet before taking nutritional supplements because most nutrients are more potent when they come from food, and they are accompanied by many nonessential but beneficial nutrients, such as hundreds of carotenoids, flavonoids, minerals, and antioxidants that aren’t in most supplements. Additionally, food tastes better and is often cheaper than nutritional supplements!
In addition to iodine, seaweeds offer a range of other nutrients (such as calcium and magnesium) and beneficial compounds including Alginates, fucoidan, laminarins and lignans.
Check our recipe section for inspiration on using seaweed salt in your food. Do 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.
