Sweet Kelp (Saccharina latissimi) also known as sweet kombu or sugar kelp, was so named as it actually contains saccharin, a natural form of sugar. This large brown kelp is hand harvested from the pristine Atlantic waters off the Connemara coast. The species is usually found at sheltered rocky seabeds. As with all our seaweeds, Sweet Kelp is sustainably harvested as only the upper half of the plant is trimmed leaving the remaining part of the plant to regenerate.
Sweet Kelp was also known as the ‘Poor Man’s weather glass’ as it was used to help predict the weather; when the humidity increases the plant has a tendency to go limp, and when the humidity decreases it becomes dry and brittle.
