Wakame seaweed is a good source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, C, E, K, folate and soluble/insoluble fibre, and has among the very highest nutrient-to-calorie ratios (from a vegetarian source). The salty taste is not just salt but a balanced, chelated combination of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron and trace minerals.

Sea vegetables help alkalise our bodies from the over-acidity of the modern diet and contain 10 to 20 times MORE bioavailable minerals and vitamins than land vegetables, with no fat and low calories ! For example, lack of iodine in the human body (which is widely absent from Australian soils but present in sea vegetables) can create a whole huge range of  health issues.

Some common questions...
1. What does Wakame taste like?
Kinda salty, kinda ‘sea-fresh'.

2. Do I have to hydrate it first?
No these flakes have a soft texture

3. Is it raw?
Yes…. either shade-dried or sun-dried.

4. Is it irradiated?
No! Double NO!! A food can not be certified organic AND irradiated – the two are mutually exclusive.

5. Is it just like the bright green Wakame you are served in sushi restaurants?
NO, that is actually a highly processed version of Wakame, involving nutrient loss and a high carbon footprint. Ours is the natural dark green, naturally dried version of this.

6. Is it from Japan? Or China? Or Korea??
No this Wakame is from Canada.

Sprinkle in soups, stocks, stews, miso, stir-frys or savoury dishes. Alternatively, use to ‘salt' pasta or potato boiling water.

Hand-harvested from the icy cold waters of Dark Harbour in the Canadian Maritimes (Atlantic), then sundried or shade dried.

In Japan, Wakame is the kelp from the family Pinnatifida.  However, in Ireland and Canada wakame is Alaria Esculenta. 

We don’t use Japanese seaweed as to date we have not been able to find a supplier that can meet our quality standards.  Further to this there are still concerns about radioactive contamination around the waters of Japan.
