Maine Coast Sea Seasonings Organic Kelp Granules Salt Alternative, 1.5 oz, $4.49
'Kelp' is a name commonly used for many seaweeds. Our Sea Seasonings Kelp Granules are a blend of Alaria esculenta and ascophyllum nodosum, hand-harvested from wild beds in the north Atlantic, and dried at mild temperatures to retain enzymes and nutrition. They contain no additives, and every step from harvest to milling is certified organic. Use sea seasonings to replace salt in soups, stir fries, salads and dips. Kelp Granules impart umami, the savory and mysterious fifth taste, to any dish. Sea vegetables are rich in umami because they naturally contain glutamic acid, used by almost every lifeform to synthesize protein. One serving of Kelp Granules is also an excellent source of iodine (1,092% RDI), essential for thyroid function and body metabolism, and they contain trace ocean minerals and bioactive compounds not found in many land vegetables. We hope you enjoy this ocean bounty!

Turmeric is the ground rhizome of a plant in the ginger family. McCormick hand-picks its turmeric for deep color and flavor. Turmeric works well with orange veggies like sweet potato, butternut squash, pumpkin and carrot. It is best when paired with warm spices with complimentary flavor profiles, like cinnamon, black pepper and ginger. Add a pinch of each of these spices along with turmeric to warm non-dairy milk to make Golden Milk, for a feel-good-boost any time of day. Curries, pickles, chow-chow and chutneys all get their rich yellow color from turmeric.
