Wakame is native to many coastal areas around the world and is classified as a brown despite being a dark green colour. It has a slightly sweet and silky texture and commonly used in seaweed salads or miso soups. It is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Wakame is packed with nutrition and antioxidants giving it the unique ability to absorb concentrated amounts of iodine from the ocean. The human body cannot produce iodine itself. Iodine is a vital trace mineral essential for healthy thyroid functions and early childhood development. It is also rich in protein, vitamins, fibre, low in calorie and fat. It’s also an excellent source of micronutrients including folate, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and selenium. The health benefits of Wakame are thought to contribute to immunity, cardiovascular function and overall life expectancy.
