Farmed Wakame Seaweed Leaves (Sustainably Farmed)


This farmed Wakame seaweed is cultivated in China as New Zealand does not currently have any wakame farming, at a commercial food grade scale. The seaweed is blanched, air dried and chopped into smaller sizes for convenience.

Wakame is also known as Undaria and is a popular edible seaweed, commonly added to delicious, hearty miso soups. It has a unique, subtle umami flavour and is silken to touch. If you are vegetarian or vegan, this is one sea vegetable you will grow to love as a source of wonderful flavour and an array of micronutrients, minerals and trace elements most land vegetables would find hard to match!

Why Eat Wakame – Health Benefits

Wakame is a brown seaweed, so offers a concentrated source of naturally occuring iodine – an essential nutrient for human health- specifically linked to immunity, thyroid, brain, ovarian and breast health. Iodine is an essential nutrient for the production of a hormone called thyroxin which helps to regulate many body functions. It has also been linked to apoptosis (cell death) which is critical to fighting cancer – particularly thyroid and breast cancer.  Our wild Wakame is a great addition to any diet. Depending on seasonality, it offers excellent iodine, and is also a source of calcium, magnesium, and contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and K.

We like to refer to this Harvard study, which encourages improving diet in the first instance, before adding made-made nutritional supplements. Most nutrients are more potent when they come from our food and have not been processed in a lab. Plus, food tastes better and is often cheaper than nutritional supplements, not to mention less of a hassle as you can simply add it to what you are already eating or preparing to eat.
