Before we jump into today’s topic, do you know the difference between kelp and seaweed? Seaweed serves as a general umbrella term for a diverse array of aquatic plants, encompassing various species and categories. Imagine kelp as the majestic monarch within this realm, an exceptional type of large, brown seaweed that stands tall with an impressive array of health benefits and nutritional riches.

Seaweed, including kelp, has been traditionally consumed in Asian and Pacific cultures. In Japan, seaweed is part of an impressive 21% of meals, potentially contributing to the nation’s reputation for longevity. In Western countries, seaweed is gaining popularity due to the widespread awareness of its notable nutritional content.

Renowned for its exceptional capacity to absorb a profusion of nutrients from its oceanic environment, kelp stands as a veritable treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Kelp has an exceptionally high amount of iodine. According to the journal Food & Nutrition Research, the iodine content in one portion of whole food macroalgae products can range from 128 to 62,400 micrograms.

Kelp has two important bioactive compounds that you might not know about: fucoxanthin and fucoidan. Interestingly, these compounds are not found in land-based vegetables. Kelp’s robust antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties have the potential to help prevent chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Moreover, fucoxanthin has demonstrated protective properties on the liver. Moreover, according to an article in the book series “Advances in Food and Nutrition Research,” kelp aids in preventing the development of specialized bone cells known as osteoclasts, which can lead to weakened bones.

As you dip your culinary toes into the world of kelp, you'll discover that this versatile oceanic ingredient offers more than just nutritional value. Its natural glutamates, renowned for their umami flavor, open up a gateway to a realm of creative culinary possibilities. Dried kelp can be added to vegan soups or stews, enriching their flavors with newfound depth. And if your cravings lean toward something unconventional, yet nutritious, sprinkle kelp powder or flakes as seasoning on familiar favorites or blend them into green smoothies, unlocking an extra layer of healthful goodness.
