This week Mara Seaweed made catering-size tubs of their seaweed available to retail customers in their online shop.
The range of 120g catering tubs were previously only available to chefs and foodservice but now these larger containers of edible seaweed have been added to Mara’s website due to customer demand.
Mara's rock salt-sized seaweed flakes are designed to be as simple as possible to add to food, encouraging more people to introduce seaweed into their diet, whilst the Mara website offers a wealth of healthy seaweed recipe ideas to get customers started.
The new tubs make it easy to spoon seaweed into soups, stews, mixes and marinades and are ideal for refilling existing Mara products, such as shaker tins.
Already popular with professional chefs, powdered seaweed is perfect for those who require a finer consistency or want a more intense burst of flavour. The smaller particles have more surface area to release flavour, allowing the texture to "melt across your palate."
Try seaweed powder as an alternative to salt by shaking it onto popcorn, using it to stir added savouriness into ramen or mix it in when baking, especially in bread.
Mara Seaweed’s four original favourites, Dulse, Kombu, Shony and award-winning Applewood Smoked Dulse, are also available in catering tubs as flakes.
