The combination of knowledge, experience and traditions from opposite sides of the planet is at the heart of what makes Lofoten Seaweed unique. From diverse beginnings, united over a love of food and the ocean, Tamara and Angelita are committed making a difference by bringing seaweed into the modern kitchen.
Angelita grew up cutting cod tongues and baiting long lines for her fisherman father in the village of Napp. The ocean was a lifeline for her family. However, the curiosity about seaweed only arose when she was researching food for her own health. Her discovery of this superfood from the ocean led to her passionate belief that seaweed is the food of the future.
Tamara grew up in New Zealand, where her Japanese mother served seaweed in almost every meal. With a passion for food and an eye for detail, combined with an heirloom knowledge and love of Japanese cuisine, she creates pure authentic food with her favourite sea greens.
Life in Lofoten is challenging and beautiful. Our unique ocean forms the perfect habitat for the world’s largest cod fishery (as well as a myriad of other plant and animal life) because its arctic waters are fed by the warm Gulf Stream. As well as milder temperatures, the ocean current brings a wealth of diverse nutrients and minerals, which create a rich and varied underwater ecosystem.
Nappstraumen is the strait that connects Vestfjorden to the Norwegian Sea, after passing right by our doorstep in Napp. The stormy, turbulent waters drive nutrients up from the deep, creating optimal growing conditions for seaweed and kelp, which flourish into produce of exceptional quality. It is here that we harvest, paying close attention to the ecosystem to ensure that our relationship with the ocean continues to be sustainable, and causes minimal impact.
Good for your palate: Seaweed is packed with organic glutamates, the building blocks of the fifth taste: umami. This savoury, salty-sweetness also characterises parmesan, soy sauce, tomatoes and miso paste. Each type of seaweed has a different flavour-profile; smoky, nutty, earthy and sweet, there’s a whole spectrum of flavour to discover. Seaweed is also the most nutrientrich plant on the planet. Full of vitamins A, B5, C and K, calcium, magnesium, folate, zinc, omega 3s and iodine, seaweed truly is the ocean’s superfood.
Good for the planet: Seaweed captures more CO2 than any terrestrial plant. We carefully monitor our harvesting locations to ensure the seaweed has adequate regrowth time, which means our products have absolute traceability. In an ideal future, organic seaweed farms will be required to meet the demand for this amazing ocean vegetable, providing highly effective carbon capture as a by-product. All of our seaweed is DEBIOcertified organic and harvested from Nappstraumen.
