OCIA Certified Organic and a Raw Food
Digitata is a variety of kelp that grows prolifically in the subtidal waters of the North Atlantic. Digitata Kelp is also known as "Fingered Kelp", as the blades resemble digits radiating from the palm (hence, the Latin name digitata.) Although similar in nutritional content to our regular Kelp "Kombu" (L. longicruris,) Digitata Kelp tends to contain higher amounts of iodine, calcium and mannitol — a natural sugar molecule that gives Digitata Kelp a slight sweetness.
We sell Digitata (Laminaria Digitata) as whole-leaf, granules and powder. Please note, the milled forms are sold as "Kelp Powder and "Kelp Granules."
