Kelp noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of an easy to eat raw noodle. Made of only kelp, sodium alginate (sodium salt extracted from a brown seaweed), and water, kelp noodles are fat-free, gluten-free, and very low in carbohydrates and calories. Their noodle form and neutral taste allow for a variety of uses including salads and stir-(not)fries while their healthful content provides a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, which kelp is well known for. Their unique texture completes the package, making kelp noodles a one-of-a-kind healthful and tasty alternative to pasta and rice noodles. Best of all, no cooking is required. Just rinse or soak the noodles and add to any dish and they are ready to eat, you can warm/heat them if you prefer. Enjoy this healthy, refreshing, and warming dish!
