Harvested from the eastern coastal waters of North America, Alaria esculenta is often referred to as Atlantic wakame. Nutritious with a unique flavor, Atlantic wakame flakes can be added to most foods and is especially delicious in soup. Wakame is a seaweed that looks and tastes like a slippery spinach. Wakame can be used in the same ways as many other seaweeds including in soup and as an addition to green or fruit salads. When dried wakame is soaked in water it expands to at least 10 times its dried size.
Seaweeds contain naturally high levels of iodine. Iodine is a mineral found in some foods. The body needs iodine to make thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body’s metabolism and many other important functions. The body also needs thyroid hormones for proper bone and brain development during pregnancy and infancy. Getting enough iodine is important for everyone, especially infants and women who are pregnant.
Place up to 1 oz of wakame in a large bowl or pan you have filled with water and allow to soak for 30 minutes. The dried flakes may be liberally applied to most foods. You can add it to soups, salads, stir-fries and more to create delicious and healthy meals.
