– Kelp “Noodles” – made only from Kelp. Kelp is a sea vegetable, rich in minerals (esp. iodine) and contain no carbohydrates/sugar. These are “angel hair noodles” that are quick and easy to make. They require no cooking, just add to any dish (stir-fry, soup) or add a sauce and they`re ready to eat. Don`t have a ‘seaweed’ taste but rather a neutral taste allowing for a variety of uses. $8.49 for a 16 oz package
