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.

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

  • Origin: North Atlantic Ocean off 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.

Savory salt substitute

When my salt-aholic child was required to follow a low sodium diet, this really got them through. They put it on everything. It works great in Asian dishes and as a rice seasoning. Recommended.

Wild Icelandic Kelp

I am still using the kelp as a sprinkle on top of various dishes. It is mild and thus seems to blend with salad ingredients or sprinkled on top of a salmon steak in the frying pan. I really need to explore B and B’s recipe suggestions for this product. I really like that it is from Iceland which conjures images of cold waters and wind tossed waves.

Excellent product.

I like to use this wherever a recipe calls for sea salt. Reminds me of vacationing by the coast everytime I open the bottle, which is wonderful in the current climate.
