Kelp is one of the most frequently used sea vegetables in Korean cuisine. It is known as healthy food since it contains a significant amount of alginic acid, which prevents fat absorption and decreases sodium level in your body. Rich in dietary fiber, it also helps to prevent constipation. Dried kelp (also known as kombu) is usually used with dried anchovies to flavour the broth. Koreans also eat raw kelp as a side dish with sweet & sour red chili paste sauce ("chogochujang") or enjoy sweetened fried kelp ("boogak") as a snack (or side dish).
