Harvested from the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic off the coast of Iceland, this wild oarweed kelp has a deep umami flavor and oceanic minerality, salty and briny. Perfect for adding depth, savoriness and body to soups, or for finishing meat and seafood dishes.
This kelp is dried and ground from wild Laminaria digitata kelp in a carbon-neutral facility powered by geothermal energy.
Our wild Icelandic kelp is harvested by boat from the deep, cold water of Iceland’s Westfjords. The harvesting boats drop large scissor-like devices into the water to cut the tender, flavorful tops off the plants at a carefully calibrated depth that allows the kelp to regrow. The clipped kelp is collected from the ocean in nets, and transported back to our partner’s geothermal facility where it is rinsed, dried and ground.
