Gomasio is a traditional Japanese seasoning blend of toasted black sesame seeds and flake sea salt. Maria Finn of Lightly Salted adds locally harvested Kombu seaweed to turn this simple seasoning into a powerhouse blend.
Sprinkle on any food to add 'umami', a term for the fifth taste sensation commonly described as savory.
Lightly Salted donates a portion of all sales to Ocean Conservancy to support California's Marine Protected Areas. As Maria says, "It's time to rethink the way we eat from the sea."
Each jar contains 2.75 ounces of Gomasio Seasoning
Kombu seaweed is a powerhouse sea vegetable, containing high levels of iron, vitamin C, iodine, and rare minerals such as vanadium (regulates blood sugar and carbohydrate metabolism).
Sesame seeds are high in protein and fiber, along with minerals such as copper, manganese, zinc, and iron.
