The Sea Superfood
Seaweed has long been enjoyed by coastal populations around the world. Perhaps its popularity can be attributed to its impressive nutritional profile: seaweed can contain up to 20 times the mineral content of most land vegetables. Seaweed naturally absorbs the nutrients from its marine environment, making sourcing from pure waters vital.
Wakame Flakes are a delicious source of iodine, potassium, Vitamin B6, B12 and Magnesium. Iodine is essential for production of normal thyroid hormones, maintenance of normal healthy skin and energy metabolism.
Certified Organic Sustainable 100% Wakame Flakes (Alaria esculenta)
Power Super Foods Wakame Flakes are delicious sprinkled onto miso, noodles, bibimbap bowls and stir fries. They are also a versitile alternative to salt, rendering a nutrient boost to soups, casseroles, stocks and salads.
What does Wakame taste like?
Kinda salty, kinda ‘sea-fresh'.
Do I have to hydrate it first?
No these flakes have a soft texture
Is it raw?
Yes…. either shade-dried or sun-dried.
Is it irradiated?
No! Double NO!! A food can not be certified organic AND irradiated – the two are mutually exclusive.
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.
Is it from Japan? Or China? Or Korea??
No, no, & NO! Our Wakame is from Canada.
