This Kombu Seaweed is harvested from the North Island of NZ, dried naturally to preserve nutrients and tested for contaminants in accordance with the ANZ Food Code. Kombu is essentially kelp seaweed, which has been laid flat to dry in a particular way.
Use Kombu to add essential micronutrients and delicious umami flavour to broths, soups, stocks and for tenderising beans.
You may notice a fine white powder on Kombu - this is glutamine.
Kombu Leaves are flavourful but with less intensity per leaf than strips. The leaves are made from the kelp’s fronds.
