Kombu Seaweed leaves are cut from Kelp which is a brown seaweed.  Kelp is widely regarded as the best natural, most concentrated source of iodine – an essential nutrient for human health – specifically linked to immunity, thyroid, brain, ovarian and breast health. Iodine is an essential nutrient for the production of a hormone called thyroxin which helps to regulate many body functions. It has also been linked to apoptosis (cell death) which is critical to fighting cancer – particularly thyroid and breast cancer.

In addition to iodine, Kelp offers a range of other nutrients  (such as calcium and magnesium) and beneficial compounds  including Alginates, fucoidan, laminarins and lignans.

These Kombu Leaves were wild harvested from the North Island of NZ, dried naturally to preserve nutrients and tested for contaminants.

PLANT BASED / GM FREE / GLUTEN FREE / LOW FAT / EXCELLENT SOURCE OF IODINE

How To Use

Soak Kombu seaweed leaves in tepid water and gradually warm allowing the nutrients and flavour to seep into the water.  Then use this flavourful, nutrient enriched infused water as the base of your stock.

Make up a broth or stock and freeze for future use, or if you have more liquid than you require, use the kombu infused water for a natural restorative facial, or water your plants with it.

Add umami, salty and sweet flavour to fish and meat.

Cut Kombu into strips and stir fry for a healthy snack.

Infuse drinks for a unique umami flavour.

Kombu leaves are softer than kombu strips so can be used for wrapping food parcels (before baking or roasting) – rehydrate slightly prior to use if they need a little more softening.

* The white powder you see on the dried Kombu leaf if an amino acid called glutamine. This is what is said to give Kombu’s it’s wonderful natural umami flavour and is not to be confused with mould.
