Pacific Harvest is New Zealand's number one producer of the most popular seaweeds from NZ and worldwide. Seaweeds are prized for their health-giving properties & their culinary versatility. Pacific Harvest plants are largely unprocessed and tested for contaminants.
Pacific Harvest is an innovative producer of fine edible seaweed products in New Zealand. They offer an extensive range of seaweeds indigenous to NZ and other oceans around the world. Their passion for seaweed has them focus equally on producing high quality products that are easy to use and preserving their outstanding health properties. Their product range cover a wide variety of applications, from seasoning to garnish, soup & salads and even ingredients for dessert. Most seaweeds are wild harvested & dried naturally to preserve all the nutrients. Seaweeds keep a long time dried, without need for preservative. Unlike land plants, they will re-hydrate to their original colour & texture, expanding 5-10 times in the process. Largely unprocessed, they are tested for contaminants and cleaned / packed by hand.
Seaweeds have been prized for centuries for their superb nutrition. They are recognised as a nutritional powerhouse, providing all the essential elements necessary to good health. In particular, they are widely recognised for their iodine content, their fatty acid ratio favouring Omega 3 and the unique properties of their sulfated-polysaccharide fibers. Each plant provides a unique nutritional balance of these nutrients. Seaweeds are an important source of unique nutrients in the vegetarian diet as they contain elements otherwise mostly available in fish & meat.
Although they have been used as a staple by many coastal nations prior to the great wars, it is only recently that the Western World has re-discovered their culinary potential. Seaweeds come in a great variety of colours, textures & flavours and are easy to integrate in one's diet. They are prized by Chefs around the world for their Umami flavour, their visual appeal and versatility in the kitchen. A small amount suffices to take advantage of their nutritional value and the much sought-after Umami flavour.
Pacific Harvest Chilli Kelp seasoning is great to add warmth & pzazz to a dish while increasing your iodine intake naturally!
Especially tasty with root vegetables & beef
Kelp is classified as a Brown Algae
Pacific Harvest prepares a range of exquisite kelp condiments designed to enhance both wellbeing and cooking experience
Very little salt (if any) is required when using them
The mineral concentration is such that Kelp tastes salty naturally, with a lot less sodium than salt
In Chilli Kelp Seasoning, kelp granules (71%) are mixed with chillies and other spices to make a warm and nutritious condiment
Because of its leathery texture, Kelp does very well prepared as a seasoning
The grind is small enough to become tender when exposed to moisture from other food ingredients
Pacific Harvest Kelp is wild-harvested sustainably from designated coastal areas in New Zealand and tested for contaminants.
Seaweed generally - and Kelp especially - are a rich source of natural iodine. Each specie has a unique level of iodine so please consult the label to determine serving size. In NZ the RDI (recommended daily intake) for iodine is 150mcg.
Consume in small quantities to stay within the RDI for iodine.
People with thyroid disorders or sensitivities to iodine should consult their health practitioner before consuming this product.
Chilli Kelp Seasoning: Can be used before, during or after cooking. We particularly like Chilli Kelp as a rub on beef or lamb where it performs both as a seasoning and a tenderiser. The chilli flavour infuses the meat and the kelp tenderises and provides for the salty taste! Chilli Kelp also makes a flavourful garnish on many foods including casserole dish, stir-fries, salads or spreads & dips (like hummus or guacamole). Try Chilli Kelp on cauliflower, add a bit of cheese, delicious! For best results add the flavoured seasonings at the end of the cooking when flavouring a stew or casserole dish as prolong cooking will weaken the natural flavours & destroy some of the vitamins.
