Product Description

Sea Vegetable. Hand harvested wild. Eden Kombu is a wide leaf, deep growing sea vegetable that flourishes in the cold Arctic waters of Japan's northernmost island where the best Kombu grows wildly. Eden Kombu is hand harvested and sun dried. We offer only the most tender central part of the leaf because of its mild flavor and pleasing texture. Highly appreciated for it's food value and flavor enhancing characteristics, Kombu has been considered a health food for centuries in Asia. Kombu is an essential ingredient in the delicious Japanese noodle broth, dashi, but can be added to any soup or soup stock to enliven it. Stew it with vegetables. Pickle or deep-fry it. Pan or oven roasted and grind to a powder, Kombu makes a tasty and most nourishing table condiment. Sprinkle some on popcorn instead of salt as low-sodium, delicious variation. Product of Japan.

I have to admit I'm a bit of a seaweed snob. I grew up eating seaweed so I'm not a stranger to it. I've been on a health food kick lately and started to cook a lot of miso soups, legumes, etc. Kombu is the quintessential ingredient for majority of the dishes I cook. It lends that famous savoriness (umami) that only comes w/ Excellent quality harvested seaweed from Japan (see, I told you...snob) ;-p.

When I first started back to cooking macrobiotic and raw food meals I purchased Kombu and Wakame from a lot of different vendors (coops, organic markets, asian groceries, online vendors, etc). As I started cooking with all the different brands of seaweeds, I noticed there's a distinct difference in taste between the brands. I have to say - Eden has one of the BEST seaweeds out there (texture, taste, no additives, clean).

Everything I cook has that hearty savoriness with the Eden brand. With other brands - the seaweed texture, color, and/or taste is subpar compared to Eden. I don't know what it is but when I cook w/ the other seaweeds - seriously - it just tastes as if something is "missing".

Since noticing the taste difference I wanted to know why Eden had one of the Best seaweeds... I went to Eden's website and read all the stories and research that go behind their products. I'm very impressed by their dedication in bringing Quality, Healthy, and Clean food to us! I'm now a Huge fan of Eden!

Since I grew up eating a lot of seaweeds - I know what good quality tasting seaweed is... and I have to say - Eden has one of the best out there! You have to try it!

Eden Foods is a great company if you ever research up on them. They take care to ensure that the products they sell are pure and clean. This is the only brand of Khombu, seaweed, and nori that I use, and it comes from Japan, not China. These strips are great for adding into soups for extra flavor...the umami like the previous poster said. I would not trust the other brand of seaweed I see at the coops...the Emerald one, because it comes from China, and there is hardly any oversight over there. Eden Foods also makes a good gomasio blend if you ever have a chance to buy it.

I've used Eden Foods Kombu for years to make Japanese soup stock for Miso Soup and as a natural flavor additive to any dish. It's very shelf stable and keeps for years, if you just want to have some in the pantry. I used it recently to flavor the stock for my standby Portuguese kale soup, with no fishy flavor at all unlike you get with nori -- my soup was delicious as ever.

With the concerns about getting iodine in your diet naturally, I used this kombu to cook rice and make a meat chili with canned kidney beans and diced tomatoes. Adds more flavor to anything boiled (it does contain a natural MSG from the sea) and sea minerals like potassium and calcium to your food besides the big iodine boost -- I completely recommend it.

I put a half piece of Kombu into the water when I cook beans. I don't notice a change in taste but it's an easy way to get extra needed manesium (and it's known to reduce flatulance) I also put a half strip in when I make soup. My package came before the scheduled date and this online price was lower than anywhere else that I could find and way less than in the stores.

I am no expert in kombu, but the dashi that I I'm able to make with this and bonito flakes tastes fantastic. I just boil the kombu for anywhere from 10 min. to an hour and then drain it. I've also tried eating the kombu after it's been boiled for a long time. It's very pleasant and has a very firmness and crunch to it.
