Sugar kelp (Saccharina lattissima) is a brown algae, known for its brown coulour, characteristic blade with wave shaped edges, and sweet taste.
Sugar kelp occurs naturally along the Norwegian coastline from the intertidal zone down to 30 meters and can become until 5 meters long. Macroalgae are marine plants, and their nutritional content will vary depending on season, geographical location and temperature.
Sugar Kelp is regarded one of the most delicate of the edible seaweeds because of their sweet taste and their natural content of glutamate, providing the rich and tasteful umami flavour.
