Why should I eat kelp noodles? They are a great gluten free alternative to wheat pasta, rice, or quinoa noodles. Kelp noodles do not contain any flour, rice or sugar and they do contain an abundance of beneficial minerals.
Are kelp noodles raw? Yes, our kelp noodles are a raw food. They do not undergo any heating over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
What do kelp noodles taste like? The noodles are neutral in taste and surprisingly not "sea-like" which lends to their versatility in savory or sweet dishes.
Do kelp noodles need to be cooked? No, they are ready to serve straight from the package. Simply rinse the noodles in water and enjoy! This way they have a fun, crunchy texture. But you can certainly cook them, too. If the noodles are heated in a liquid they turn soft in texture (like in a miso soup).
Why are kelp noodles clear and not green? When the outer skin of kelp is removed, the inner portion of the kelp plant actually looks just like our noodles.
What is sodium alginate? It is a sodium salt derived from brown seaweed. It is known to help remove heavy metals from your body.
What is the shelf life of kelp noodles? The unopened package will stay fresh in your pantry for up to six months. After opening the package, simply store them in water and refrigerate to prevent the noodles from dehydrating.
