Kelp Seasoning (Plain, Raw, NZ Harvested) – 45g
Our Kelp Seasoning is raw, unflavoured kelp granules, ground from kelp seaweed which was harvested from the North Island of New Zealand, dried naturally to preserve nutrients and tested for contaminants. It is a highly nutritious culinary supplement and many on a lower sodium diet use kelp granules as a salt replacement or seasoning during cooking.
How to Use Kelp Seasoning?
Sprinkle into food before, during or after cooking. Adds body and salty, sweet umami flavour to soups, stews and gravies. Use it to replace regular table salt.
Benefits of Kelp Seasoning?
Kelp is a brown seaweed and 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. 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, Kelp offers a range of other nutrients (such as calcium and magnesium) and beneficial compounds including Alginates, fucoidan, laminarins and lignans.
