  • Kombu leaves are the blades of the kelp plant. We offer them in 25g or 80g boxes. Kombu leaves offer slightly weaker broth. They can be softened and used to wrap around fish or chicken to bake.
  • Kombu strips are the stems of the kelp plant. We offer them in 40g or 180g boxes. The Kombu strip forms a stronger broth. The strip is tough and spiky and should be placed in a compost bin after soaking.
