could kelp trump kale?

Gabriela Bradt, a fisheries specialist at the University of New Hampshire, is ready to make Kelp the “Kale of the Sea”.

According to her interview in The Salt:

“The American varieties of kelp and other seaweeds, though, are thought to be milder in flavor than ones found in Asian waters. But they contain the same “nutritional smorgasbord” of other sea plants — they’re packed with vitamins and minerals including iodine, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B12.”

Kelp and seaweed are already prominent products in the local scene here in Maine.  With the excitement still building for the Maine Sail Freight, we think you should give it a taste!
