Wild-harvested Wakame adds a unique but subtle umami flavour to many dishes. Wakame works well in salads, stir-fires and soups, as well as many other dishes. This wild New Zealand Wakame is a great addition to any diet- depending on seasonality, it is high in Iodine, Calcium, Magnesium, and contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and K. Simply rehydrate in tepid water for a few minutes, it will expand to 5-10 times its dried size.
The wakame is air dried to preserve colour and nutrients. We then test for contaminants before packing our seaweed in our New Zealand facility. The white powder you see on the leaf is what is said to give seaweed its natural umami flavour and is not to be confused with mould.
Contains Wakame (Undaria sp.) dried sea vegetable 100%.
