Pacific Harvest Wakame Leaves Wild Harvested
Ingredients: Wakame (Undaria sp.) dried sea vegetable
Wild harvested Wakame adds a unique but subtle umami flavour to many dishes. Wakame works well in salads, stir fries or soups, as well as many other dishes.
Wild 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.
Directions: Re-hydrate your wakame in tepid water for a few minutes. This will cause the leaves to expand 5-10 times their dried size. Once rehydrated, they can be used to wrap food parcels, or chop dry leaves onto food as a seasoning or garnish.
Pacific Harvest wakame is either farmed or wild harvested, then air dried to preserve colour and nutrients. It is then test for contaminants before packing the seaweed in their 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.
