Reviews For Kelp Granules Shaker
Based on 16 Reviews
Healthy seasoning alternative to salt
I moved from southern California with it's many markets I now live in a rural area and this is not available in local markets. So glad to have it available on Thrive.
Kelp Grandules Shaker
This add such a unique and only slightly salty flavor to any meal. So good for you as well.
It has a great flavor and isn't super salty.
Nice alternative to salt
I primarily purchased this due to it being a source of iodine and typically use it to provide a different flavor profile to Asian vegan dishes I cook. A little goes a long way as the flavor is powerful. I really like it!!
Made me forget about salt
Awesome flavor that makes me forget I'm not using salt all while getting some great vitamins and minerals. My only issue is the shaker it comes out way to fast unless you make the opening quite small.
It's quite tasty, and a wonderful way to get extra nutrition as well as flavor into a meal.
Love the flavor
I am really enjoying the flavor of this kelp, mild but very flavorful.
Not too strong
I use this on everything I season. I find the taste is not strong at all, so I still use salt on top of the kelp. As the product states, I am after the iodine content.
I have enjoyed adding these kelp granules to my salads and soups. The flavor isn't noticable and I appreciate the nutriet boost to my foods.
Great for Your Iodine Requirement
This stuff is definitely good, but it takes some getting used to. If you're using it as a salt replacement, it does have a mineral taste that helps replace salt, but it definitely doesn't taste exactly like salt tastes either. It has pretty low sodium, and for 8 calories a serving, you actually get a whole gram of fiber and a good amount of iodine, so that's pretty awesome. I have noticed that, as they're entirely naturally made, some of these taste slightly different than others, but it's not bad in any way. You'll just go "Hmm, this is crunchier" and go about eating it. This stuff is definitely tasty.
Sassy salt alternative
I still prefer my sea salt, but this stuff is pretty good. I alternate between the two and use this one mostly in soups. It is less potent than regular salt but spikes the flavor in food just the same.
Kelp granules are full of minerals that the body needs so I like using them when I can.

Get your iodine here
Iodine is important in the humane diet and one of the main places people get it is in iodized salt. Salt is bad for you. This iodine rich kelp granules is good for you.
No need for salt now with this great tasting alternatives. Use it anywhere you'd usually use salt and you'll be happy with the great flavor.
Not like salt at all
Ok, I know this is a salt substitute, but you'd expect it to taste a little like salt, right? This isn't bad, but it's very crunchy and the pieces stay in your mouth.
The flavor is ok, but it doesn't blend into your food as nicely as salt does. But I'm still getting my iodine, so I'll stick with it. Just know that it's a different kind of thing than salt.

Never the same
What's great about these kelp granules is that you never get the same exact flavor. Because it comes from the ocean, you may get a pack that is stronger or milder, depending on the kelp.
But it's great on anything I use for salt, especially my home-made fries and my popcorn. It adds a nice crunch to food and the fact that it's low sodium helps keep my blood pressure down.
Great salt substitute
These kelp granules are an outstanding value if you want to cut down on your sodium intake. You can sprinkle them on anything, just like salt.
You get a ton of potassium, iron and none of the chemicals that are often found in salt products, even sea salt. And the granules add a nice flavor that makes your dishes taste even better.

Worth putting on the table for a salt substitute.
I can't say this is my favorite seasoning, but, I can say, it serves a purpose
and that is, helping to cut back on salt usage, as well as providing a source
of iodine. All in all, worth putting on the table for a salt substitute.
