Fun facts

Health benefits of Kombu the seaweed:

*Kombu is a low calorie, nutrient dense food. One seven-inch piece of kombu contains roughly 10 calories, 0 grams fat, 0 grams cholesterol, 180 milligrams (mg) sodium, 340 mg potassium, 2 grams carbohydrate, 2 grams fiber, 4 percent calcium, and 12 percent magnesium. It also contains vitamin C, A, E, K, B-vitamins, iodine, iron, manganese, and copper.

* Iodine is a critical component of thyroid hormones. It is also important in brain development and, therefore, an important nutrient for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

* A diet rich in fiber has been associated with a healthier weight, better blood sugar control, and decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Seaweed contains dietary fiber, mostly soluble, which may help lower cholesterol and increases feelings of fullness.

* Certainly, before consuming algae you should check the quality. Numami Seaweed algae are cultivated in a controlled environment and dry-freezed, thus preserving all the necessary vitamins and minerals.

Recipe for 4


50 g of corn kernels

2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast

2 tablespoons Numami Kombu algae (you can buy algae from here)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon rapeseed oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil


Take a thick-bottomed pot. Turn on the stove and place the pot with the coconut and rapeseed oil on the stove. Add 3 seeds to the oil. Cover the pot and wait for the kernels to pop, which might take a few minutes. Once the kernels pop, add the remaining seeds and put the lid back on the pot. Shake the pot so that all the seeds fall to the bottom of the pot. After a few minutes, the rest of the kernels start to pop. Continue cooking until the popping sound slows to about one pop per every few seconds. Turn off the heat. Place the pot on a different surface to prevent the lower patches of corn from burning. Take a bowl and pour the popcorn into it. Add nutritional yeast, Kombu algae, and sesame oil. Mix everything together properly. Enjoy your fresh popcorn watching a movie with friends. Bon Appetit!
