New Zealand soil can be deficient in trace minerals. Does your kelp powder provide some?

It’s true that most NZ soil is deficient in some trace minerals, including selenium. This is due to the volcanic nature of our soils and also our high rainfall which leaches minerals into the waterways and ultimately the oceans. Industrial agricultural practices during our recent history have exacerbated soil mineral imbalances. The good news is our oceans are a rich source of all trace minerals and kelp (and other seaweeds) are naturally abundant in these essential microminerals. Consume a small amount of kelp daily as a dietary supplement to provide those important elements missing from our land-based food crops.

How many mcg or mg of iodine would be per one teaspoon (5grams) of kelp powder?

In one 5gm teaspoon of kelp powder, there is on average 1.8mg iodine. You only need a small quantity (a pinch) of kelp powder per person to provide the minimum amount that is recommended people consume on a daily basis.

What are the main differences with the BioBalance Kelp Powder and dried leaf wakame?

Our Kelp Powder is the species Ecklonia radiata whereas wakame is a different seaweed species called Undaria Pinnatifida that is originally from Asia, not native to New Zealand like the kelp is. What both seaweed sources have in common is they both grow wild in New Zealand’s deep coastal waters. Both kelp and wakame are classed as brown seaweeds and contain good levels of important nutrients such as iodine, fucoidan and fucoxanthin. Kelp and Wakame differ in taste and texture to some degree, being different marine plants. While kelp retains its brown colour when rehydrated, dried wakame leaf’s dark brownish colour changes to a green-brown when rehydrated. Radioactivity analysis on BioBalance Kelp Powder showed no presence of either iodine-131, caesium-134 or caesium-137. Our oceans naturally contain all of the minerals existing in the Earth’s crust, including heavy metals, and in unpolluted areas these are kept at safe levels through natural balancing processes.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent product to use as a salt substitute and as the chefs are saying kelp powder enhances the flavor of food and makes it delicious! I liked the foil packet of 100grams so wondering why you have changed the packaging as it was more convenient, IMHO…

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I appreciate the product as the flavour is subtle – (I dislike kelp immensely!) I add this to my breakfast fruit and other goodies and it blends beautifully.
