Also known as Norwegian kelp, this species of brown algae is found along the coasts of Ireland, Britain, Greenland and northeastern North America.

Because kelp is high in potassium, nitrogen and calcium, it is used in organic fertilizers. Kelp granules, which are a good source of iodine and minerals, are also sprinkled onto foods.

what else you should know


Ascophyllum nodosum, or kelp, is a variety of Atlantic seaweed also known as Norwegian kelp. This aquatic plant is best known for its use in Asian cuisine as a sea vegetable. In its dried form, kelp is used to season soups and sushi.

Kelp is valued as a rich source of nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and, of course, iodine. The herb is also a rich source of algin, a type of fiber capable of absorbing up to 300 times its weight in water.
