The very special salt with an elegant touch: truffle flavour to sprinkle! Perfect!
Truffle Seaweed Salt from Lofoten Seaweed
Salt with Truffle Seaweed
A hint of white truffles & salty spray
Truffle Seaweed Salt is a unique combination of high-quality Norwegian sea salt and dried "trøffeltang" from the Lofoten Islands. The wild Truffle Seaweed is harvested by hand in the Arctic rough waters off Napp. Strictly speaking, a certain seaweed species - the so-called "Grisetang" - is harvested, on which the up to 5 cm long, hairy truffle seaweed grows. After harvesting, the reddish hairs are meticulously plucked from the large seaweed by hand and then dried. The result is finely crimped, aromatic truffle tang hairs that are ground and mixed with sea salt.
Easy to spread on the surface
The motto for the Truffle Seaweed Salt is: Simply spread it over! The salt with the finely ground seaweed enhances every meal with its elegant aroma of white truffles and a touch of the sea. In combination with melted butter on freshly cooked potatoes, fried fish or simply sprinkled on the soft boiled breakfast egg, the truffle kelp lives up to its name. The salt is also excellent for refining pasta, risotto and light sauces. Or simply sprinkled over grilled vegetables - it tastes of the sea and gives the vegetarian or vegan cuisine the extra kick. By the way: The Truffle Seaweed Salt has already delighted the gourmet palates at the Norwegian "Chef of the Year competition" in 2017.
From Lofoten, weed love!
The Truffle Seaweed Salt is a product of the Norwegian start-up Lofoten Seaweed. The company was founded in 2016 by the two women Tamara and Angelita. The idea behind Lofoten Seaweed: to make use of a potential food that grows right in front of the two Norwegian women's front doors. Algae and seaweed are natural, sustainable and, above all, renewable underwater plants without any additional effort. They not only have a wide variety of flavours - from sweet to truffles - but are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Depending on the type of algae, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B5 or even phosphorus and potassium, but also trace elements such as copper, selenium, manganese and folic acid in the underwater all-round talents. Seaweed also contains Omega 3 fatty acids and proteins. This makes Lofoten Seaweed products the ideal smart food for culinary discerning people who also want to eat health-consciously.
In 2016 the two friendly women Angelita Eriksen and Tamara Singer founded their startup Lofoten Seaweed. Their idea was to exploit the untapped potential of seaweed, which grows wild off the coasts of Lofoten - raw in its dried state and finely ground in culinary combinations with sea salt, chocolate and pasta, but also as an ingredient in beauty products.
Tamara & Angelita: The two founders
Angelita was born in a small fishing village in Lofoten. Where her father was already a fisherman. Thanks to him, she knows the Arctic waters and coasts off Lofoten like the back of her hand. In New Zealand, at the other end of the world, Tamara's Japanese mother had algae and seaweed on her menu almost every day. A physiotherapy education in Australia, ten years of friendship and numerous journeys later, the two women developed their seaweed products - from the perfect interplay of Angelita's knowledge of the sea and Tamara's know-how of Japanese algae cuisine.
From Seaweed to Superfood
All underwater plants are wild-harvested by Tamara and Angelita. They are harvested directly by hand where they grow wild in the rough, crystal clear waters off the north Norwegian coast of Lofoten. Each individual leaf is then carefully checked and sorted again in the "factory". Only then are seaweed and algae - depending on the species between 12 and 48 hours - dried in a specially developed drying room.
The products of Lofoten Seaweed
Lofoten Seaweed's range is based on the various algae and seaweed varieties in their original, dried form. Finely ground, the product Simply Seaweed contains an exciting four-pack mix of Arctic Nori, Dulse, Sugar Kelp and Winged Kelp.
