5 Organic Kombu Seaweed Packs
Organic Kombu Seaweed locally and sustainably gathered.
Kombu has a sweet and salty, beef jerky and licourice-like flavour when eaten dry. It is soft and mild when cooked.
Kombu (Kelp) is probably most well known for the unique effect it has on the taste buds, that which the Japanese call Umami.
Available to buy as a pack of 5 (30 g each). Store in a cool, dark, and dry place.
This product has an 18 month shelf life from the date of harvest. The shortest shelf life upon dispatch will be 6 months.
Kombu is used to make broths and serves as a base ingredient in stocks (such as Dashi for Miso soup), soups and stews. Also makes for great crisps.
Add a strip of Kombu to dried beans or pulses during the soaking process to speed up the cooking. It helps make beans much more digestible by breaking down the enzymes that cause the gassy feeling when eating beans. It also adds a subtle smoky flavour to the beans when cooked with it. Adds great taste to cooking rice too.
Kombu is naturally rich in iodine. Excess intake may enhance thyroid function. Reccomended maximum daily intake 5g.
