Description

Due to the nature of the product, this pack may contain a trace amount of fish, molluscs and/or crustaceans.

Sea vegetables are naturally rich in iodine. People sensitive to the effects of iodine are advised to seek medical advice before consuming this product.

Delicate fronds of dark green wakame which have a pleasant, mild flavour and a soft tender texture. Versatile and easy to use. Ideal to add to miso soup, salads and stir-fries.

Sea vegetables have long been treasured in Japan as a delicious, versatile and above all nutritious food. Hand-harvested in the clear mineral-rich waters off the coast of Japan then it is washed then hung on ropes and left to slowly dry in the sun. Unlike most commercial wakame, Clearspring Wakame is not treated with softening agents such as enzymes or monosodium glutamate (MSG).

To prepare, simply wash and soak in lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes. Drain well and rinse briefly. If desired, remove the stalk and chop into pieces. For soups and stir-fries, add the softened wakame at the end of cooking to retain its subtle flavour.

Clearspring Wakame is Undaria Pinnatifida, a brown seaweed, cultivated and dried in Japan which turns bright green when soaked.
