Konbu and Chicken Feet Soup

Konbu (海带) is a type of seaweed found in cold waters. A large
seaweed plants belonging and classified to the brown algae and
in the order of laminaria.


I was understood that konbu contains iodine. Over consumption
of iodine, can cause hypertrophy of thyroid gland, this can slow
body growth and development. I was started to taken this in 7
years ago when I got the disease of thyroid gland.

Konbu is used extensively in Japanese cuisines, but also important
in Chinese and Korean cuisine. It may be pickled with sweet and
sour flavoring as a snack.
