The Taste of Lofoten
Gift box "Lofoten Seaweed" from Lofoten Seaweed
The Lofoten Seaweed gift box - this is "The taste of Lofoten" in its most original form. The four sea-blue tins full of seaweed and seaweed salts are packed in Lofoten Seaweed's Nordic-elegant gift box - an ideal gift for all newcomers to the exciting underwater world of taste.

The beauty is that Taresalt can be used just like regular salt - to season fish, meat or vegetables. Tin number two in the Lofoten Seaweed gift box is filled with sea salt and an alga that gives food a very special taste - namely, of white truffles. Responsible for this: finely ground truffle seaweed, which makes the Truffle Seaweed Salt makes this a real treat for the palate. Number three in the gift box is a real taste sensation: the Lofoten Umami. For this, too, the best sea salt from Norway forms the basis. A mixture of ground sugar kelp, navel purple kelp, wing kelp and rag kelp provides the full-bodied umami taste. But the perfect umami flavor is provided by flakes of stockfish, which is typical of Lofoten. Sesame seeds, sugar and vinegar are also added. The result: a savory taste of more sea. The good conclusion in the four-pack makes the Smokey Seaweed Saltthe perfect mix for fish: sea salt flakes from Norway mixed with smoked seaweed flakes. This salt adds a touch of smoky flavor to fried or steamed fish.
Lofoten Seaweed" gift box contents
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
