Re: Is kelp meal same as kelp for alk drink?

Thank you for answering my email.

The was not in operation. However , I found this site recommended by another poster

On another post I found some kelp info. The meal seems like it is meant for gardening or animal feed. However, one poster said they ground the meal with a mortar to make it more of a fine powder for consumption. Not sure if that is okay, or if it is selective to the brand and or quality that one might use.

The post is :

Answer: You may be able to get some of the Iceland Kelp from :

As they buy from Thorvin and supply manufactures etc with smaller amounts?

Two kinds of kelp come from Iceland: ROCKWEED, Certified Organic

Our milled Rockweed (Ascophyllum nodosum) commonly known as Norwegian Kelp, is a fine quality Food Grade product. It is also harvested in Iceland, using geo-thermal heat for low temperature drying, and is as well Organically Certified (QAI & TUN). Product consistency and availability is excellent. Some current ingredient applications are: herbal formulations, supplements, HBA products, animal feed. Whole-leaf Rockweed from Maine, certified organic (OCIA), is also available.
Mesh sizes of 40/70 (granules) and 70 (powder)

And: KELP, Certified Organic

Our milled Kelp (Laminaria digitata) grows deep in the cold sub-tidal waters of Northwestern Iceland. Other milled 'kelp' available on the market is either intertidal Ascophyllum (rockweed) from Norway, Atlantic Canada, or New England, or the surface growing fronds of Macrocystis, harvested in California.
Our digitata is also distinguished by being the only kelp currently available that is sustainably harvested, dried, milled and bagged following the organic standards of QAI (Quality Assurance International) in the U.S., and TUN, the local Icelandic certifier.

Product consistency is excellent for both powder and granules. Some current ingredient applications are: supplements, nutrition drinks, herbal extracts, dried soup mixes, salad dressings, seasonings, cosmetic applications.

Our whole-leaf Kelp (Laminaria longicruris) is hand-harvested at its peak of nutrition and vitality during the annual spring harvest off the coast of Downeast Maine (see map...). This kelp offers a similar nutritional analysis as milled kelp, although with less iodine. Most of this organically certified Kelp (OCIA) is sold at retail, so it is available in smaller quantities than milled kelp and at a higher price.

Milled Kelp: Mesh sizes of 50 (powder) and 20/50 (granules)

But, you may have to contact them and ask for if one may buy some of either of these in small quanities?

The Rockweed (Ascophyllum nodosum) commonly known as Norwegian Kelp, may work better for some folks and the Kelp (Laminaria digitata) may work Better for other folks?

The Rockweed Kelp is going to keep one warmer in cold weather, and the Laminaria digitata(Kelp) may cause one to become Colder in cold weather?

The Laminaria digitata may have the Highest Natural Iodine content of all kelps !

So one needs to see which may work Best for the person in question?
