Reviews For Atlantic Kelp - Whole Leaf
Based on 5 Reviews
First time purchasing Atlantic Kelp in whole leaf format but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not the type to put it in salads or eat them as snacks but I do put them in any soup or stew and I found that it was of great quality and certainly brought out the flavors (and hopefully nutrients) in my soups/stews. Would buy again.
more than great.
Cant beat the price, quality or fast shipping . Love it, great store Which sells even greater products !
So very healthy
I love Kelp and add it to all my soups or beans (it improves legumes when added during the cooking process). Kelp is a fantastic source of trace minerals and iodione. This brand is very pure and great quality. I live in a Chinese area so there is seaweed in abundance in the Asian markets, but not all of them are tested for mercury and so on, so many of them contain a good deal of contaminents. This company tests for that and makes sure their seaweed is very clean. And you can't beat the price here on Thrive.
I use a 1-2" piece of this at the end of my cooking whenever I am making bone broth, cooking beans/lentils from scratch, and have even tossed a chunk in Mexican rice (basically, anything with a liquid base). It's quite leathery and not the best flavor eaten straight, so I toss it after I'm done using it. Once, I pureed it in with my homemade hummus, and no one noticed. I love how this imparts little flavor from a dish but a lot of nutrients. Bonus: about 20% cheaper than my health food store! As far as the flavor goes, as long as you're using it in a dish that has a lot of flavor, you're not likely to notice the difference. My pinto beans have a dominant cumin flavor and we use water/broth at a 2:1 ratio--but I imagine if you'd only use water, you'd definitely notice the flavor difference.
Add to soups, quinoa, brown rice
I started eating this about a year ago after reading how healthy it is for you. I add it to many different dishes. I rather enjoy it in large pieces, but for those who don't care for the taste, I grind it and then add it to the dish. That way the nutrition is there without the taste. I also like this company's dulse.
