Product Overview:

Organic Irish Seaweed Sweet Kombu/Sweet Kelp (Laminaria saccharina) certified Organic by Organic Trust Ltd is harvested along the west coast of Ireland, (Co. Donegal, Co. Galway), carefully monitored and immediately processed fresh or gently dried. All packages show the date and place of harvesting and full analysis. An example recipe is included on the packet.

High in calcium and magnesium, which keep the bones in good form.
The alginate present in all Laminaria species help the digestive tract functions.
The high iodine content make it a great ingredient for helping a slimming diet.
It is very gentle in the presence of colon irritation.
The taste of this seaweed is very acceptable, being exempt of any fishy flavour.
When cooked with legumes (beans, peas, etc.) it will neutralise the formation of unwished fermentation in the digestive system.
When cooked in sauces or soups it will be very difficult to distinguish this seaweed from any other green vegetable.
