Kelp Powder (Raw, New Zealand wild harvested)

¥850¥2,800

Our Kelp Powder is ground from kelp seaweed, harvested from the North Island of New Zealand, dried naturally to preserve nutrients, milled then tested for contaminants. It is raw and unflavoured.

It is a highly nutritious culinary supplement, primarily for it’s high iodine content, but many following a lower sodium diet use kelp powder as an alternative to processed table salt as it offers a naturally salty flavour with high micronutrients. It has a natural umami flavour so makes an excellent seasoning. For the vegan or vegetarian, kelp offers an array of micronutrients which may otherwise be difficult to find in non-animal protein sources.

How to Use Kelp Powder?

Sprinkle in porridge or add to a smoothie. Adds body and salty, sweet umami flavour to soups, stews and gravies. Use it to replace regular table salt.

Kelp also contains enzymes which can soften the walls of meat and beans so makes an excellent ingredient in marinades to tenderise and add umami flavour. It is also said to ease flatulence!

Benefits of Kelp Powder?

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.

We like to refer to this Harvard study, which encourages improving diet in the first instance, before adding made-made nutritional supplements. Most nutrients are more potent when they come from our food and have not been processed in a lab. Plus, food tastes better and is often cheaper than nutritional supplements, not to mention less of a hassle as you can simply add it to what you are already eating or preparing to eat.

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.
