Seaweed Powder

Regular price £12.99 Sale

Finer particles for a very different flavour experience

Although Mara’s seaweed powders taste similar to our flakes, there is a complete absence of texture. The mineral salts infuse a rich intensity through a silky, melting sensation on the tongue.

What Mara fans say about Kombu powder

“I use it in all my classes and most of my dishes, especially making soup for the ramen class and gyoza class. I love the light but very deep umami flavour that this form of kelp gives.”

Yuki Gomi, Japanese chef, London

How do I enjoy Mara Seaweed powder?

chocolate, whisky and seaweed truffles

Seaweed powder is ideal for adding savouriness to vegan dishes – but you can also use it liberally on cheese, to make the cheese even more irresistible.

Try spooning Kombu powder over fresh popcorn for a healthier, satisfying salt alternative. Mix seaweed powder and cornflour for a light and flavourful fish batter, or combine with Mexican spices for the most moreish beef fajitas you’ve ever tasted.

Seaweed powder is perfect for baking. Use in place of salt in cakes or add to soufflés, cheese straws and oatcakes for an extra boost of ‘mmm.’ The alginates will help the other ingredients to bind better too.

In the Mara office, our favourite use of seaweed powder is in these fabulous whisky truffles.
