Snacks from the Sea Are Better for People and the Planet

Delicious, nutrient-rich, kelp-based snacks support marine ecosystems while providing a lifestyle of happiness and health.


SCOTTSDALE, AZ (MAY 2024) – Kelp is one of the most sustainable plants in the world. Not only do kelp forests thrive without the use of pesticides and fertilizers, they also support carbon sequestration, promote biodiversity, buffer ocean acidification, and improve water quality. Snacks from the Sea supports these incredible ecosystems by creating nutrient-dense, kelp-based snacks that are harvested sustainably to ensure a vibrant ecosystem while supporting a lifestyle of health and happiness.


Inspired by a nourishing dish made by her Korean mother, Snacks from the Sea founder Jennifer wanted to provide people in America with theincredible health benefits of kelp in a convenient, delicious, crunchy snackMoreso than traditional seaweed, kelp is a nutrient powerhouse thatcontains healthy vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A and K1, folate, magnesium, iron, and iodine and a powerful antioxidant, fucoidan, which has been shown to have anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and immunoregulatory properties. Snacks from the Sea’s signature product, Kelpie Chips, delivers the nourishing power of kelp in a line of all-natural kelp chips available in three delicious flavors: Zesty Pizza, Chipotle, and Salt & Pepper. 


Apart from supporting vibrant human health, Snacks from the Sea also benefits marine ecosystems. Snacks from the Sea works directly with Korean farmers to harvest kelp from large, sustainable underwater forests. Their kelp farmers are part of an eco-friendly cooperative that was one of the first kelp producers to receive an ASC-MSC seaweed certification. This certification means their operations have demonstrated proven success at minimizing environmental impact, and that employees and the community are being cared for. ASC-MSC-certified operations are monitored based on five criteria: sustainable wild populations, environmental impacts, effective management, social responsibility, and community relations and interactions.

“In Korea, kelp has been used as a remedy for thousands of years,” saidSnacks from the Sea founder Jennifer Murphy. “In creating Snacks from the Sea, I wanted to share the amazing benefits of this nutrient powerhouse with people across the United States. In doing so, we are also supporting marine ecosystems that sequester carbon. Our kelp-based products are a win for snackers and a win for the planet.


From sea to snack, Snacks from the Sea’s kelp-based products are sustainably sourced directly from the sea, then lightly fried with delicious natural seasonings to create the perfect crunchy kelp to eat with favorite dip, crumbled for a salad or soup topper, or carried in a backpack for clean energy on the trail. 

Snacks from the Sea can be purchased on Amazon.
