Guaranteed to wow you. If not, we'll refund or replace it!

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, for finishing meat and seafood dishes or as a salt substitute. 

This kelp is dried and ground from wild Laminaria digitata kelp in a carbon-neutral facility powered by geothermal energy.

Kelp naturally contains iodine, arsenic and other minerals. Based on FDA recommendations for daily intake, we suggest consuming no more than a pinch (1/10th of a teaspoon) per person per day.

New York Magazine named our kelp one of their favorite salt alternatives. Chef Zoe Kana says: "I completely fell in love with it when I tasted it and it’s become a pantry item in our kitchen. We serve it with our bread course at Simon and the Whale on top of butter, it’s amazing. I take it home and I put it on popcorn it’s my go-to salt when I don’t need it to perform technically for me and I’m just looking for flavor."

Epicurious recommends topping your crudités with kelp flakes: "These kelp flakes are salty, mineral-tinged, and savory in that intriguing but also can’t-stop-eating-it way."

  • Origin: Westfjords, Iceland
  • Process: Air dried, then ground
  • Ingredients: 100% wild kelp (Laminaria digitata)
  • Tasting notes: Oceanic Minerality • Brine • Funky Umami

COOKING

SOURCING

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. Click here to see where our kelp is harvested!

NUTRITIONAL INFO

The maximum daily recommended serving of our kelp (based on FDA recommended limits on daily iodine consumption limits) is about 1 small pinch (about 1/10th of a teaspoon) per person per day.

Never had kelp flakes before

The kelp flakes were tasty. I've never had these before, and they were salty and "earthy" in a way that a plant from the sea can be. I plan on mixing it with some sesame seeds and dehydrated garlic to make a furikake-style condiment.
