Hidaka Hokkaido Kelp 100gm
Hidaki Kelp from Hokkaido, is an all purpose kelp. It's thickness and softness make it best suited for simmered kelp, kelp simmered in soy sauce, and soup stock kelp.
Some 90% of the konbu caught in the waters off Japan is from Hokkaido. Capitalizing on its rich flavour, konbu kelp is used in soup broths, konbu-maki, oden and other simmered dishes, and tororo-konbu, which is minced kelp. In recent years, the health and beauty effects of the calcium, iodine, and fibre contained in konbu kelp have been reaffirmed, increasing its popularity.
Hokkaido’s ocean temperatures range between 5 and 20 degrees Celsius, ideal for growing konbu kelp year round. In addition to excellent natural conditions, the coastline offers rich minerals because of its currents, sea ice, or mountain waters flowing from mountain to sea. Konbu harvesting mainly involves wrapping it around a scythe-like tool. Harvested konbu kelp is dried in the sunlight in a depot managed by each fisherman.
