Why You’ll Love It

Our Kelp is a thinner, more tender variety of Japanese Kombu and can be used exactly the same way — in soup stocks, pan-fried for chips or stir-fried. It's great roasted, fried, pickled, boiled, sautéed and marinated. Kelp is a must for all soup stocks, enriching flavor and nutrition. You should never cook beans without it, as it tenderizes, shortens cooking times and increases digestibility. Kelp is rich in nutrients and is a rich source for minerals and trace elements, including calcium, potassium and magnesium and it offers substantial amounts of some of the B vitamins. Kelp contains Mannitol, a natural sugar molecule that gives it a slight sweetness and glutamic acid, the amino acid that tenderizes beans and makes them more digestible.

About This Brand

Offering eight organically certified North Atlantic sea vegetable varieties.Our company was born in 1971 over a pot of seaweed miso soup in the kitchen of Linnette and Shep Erhart overlooking Hog Bay in Franklin. They had just harvested and cooked their first alaria fronds and found the soup delicious! News of the discovery spread to friends... and they told their friends…From two people producing 200 pounds in 1971, there are now about 40 of us handling around 100,000 pounds of sea vegetables annually. Another 18 year-round crew sort, pack, and market our sea veggies at our plant in Franklin, Maine.We offer eight organically certified North Atlantic varieties: alaria, dulse, kelp, laver, sea lettuce, irish moss, rockweed and bladderwrack. They are harvested directly from their beds at low tides, dried at low temperatures by sun, wood or forced hot air, (some are milled) and then packaged. We also import well-tested Organic Nori sheets from China.Mission StatementOur mission is...

Reviews For Atlantic Kelp - Whole Leaf

Based on 5 Reviews

Great Quality

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.

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.

Mineral Enhancer

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.
