100% WILD ORGANIC foraged at peak freshness.
The seaweed we harvest grows wild on the north pacific coast all the way from Alaska to California. We harvest this beautiful Kelp off the coast of Vancouver island BC in remote areas with very little human interaction.
Our harvest methods are primitive and low impact to ensure the seaweed forest stays healthy and undisturbed. Seaweed grows wild on a yearly basis, which means the amount of harvest varies, and the length of the fronds/blades can be found in different shapes and even taste more or less salty.
Harvesting seaweed is very much weather-dependent throughout the whole process from the moment we step over the boat in the ocean all the way until the final seaweed is cured and packed. Typically the harvest is at the end of the summer months as they reach their maximum yearly growth cycle. The blades are collected and naturally dried on the beach until crunchy (below 8% humidity).
The salty taste of Bull kelp seaweed can be described as umami-rich, which means a “pleasant savory taste” in Japanese.
