Royal Kombu (Saccharina Latissima)

Growing Royal Kombu

We grow sustainable Royal Kombu at our farm in the Oosterschelde. A brown algae which develops from small cuttings to large kelps, Royal Kombu can grow up to several meters in just a few months.

The thick leaves are light brown in color and have wavy edges. After the algae have been processed, they often have a dark, almost black color.

We can process Royal Kombu in several ways and we like to work closely with our customers, developing their needs.


We use the following techniques to process our seaweeds:

  • Drying
  • Freezing
  • Blanching

We then produce:

  • Whole sheets
  • Flakes
  • Powder

Deliciously healthy seasoning

Royal Kombu, also known as sugar seaweed, has both a slightly sweet and salty taste and can be readily used as a flavoring in everyday dishes. Because this type of kelp contains a higher content of natural sugars, it tastes sweeter than the other kelps.

Royal Kombu is rich in nutrients especially iodine, also calcium, magnesium, saturated fiber, proteins and vitamins A, C and K.

This strong herbal remedy has huge health benefits, including a positive effect on blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels and it can also help the function of the thyroid and other organs.
