The seaweed absorbs a huge variety of nutrients, making it a powerful, health-promoting food. Kombu is fat and cholesterol free and rich in dietary/soluble fibre, magnesium, potassium, calcium and most importantly iodine, as well as a huge range of vital vitamins.
Royal kombu has a sweeter taste than other types of kombu and can be likened to other umami flavours such as soy sauce, miso or mushroom. It is an excellent flavour enhancer and has the ability to make the food it is cooked with softer and more digestible.

Kombu can be used as a wrap in sushi, baked or steamed.
Great for seasoning soups, stews, sauces and vegetable dishes.
