Power Super Foods Organic Wakame
Wild harvested from the pristine waters of the Atlantic, Power Super Foods Wakame grows in a remote, intertidal zone. This immaculate environment ensures our sea vegetables are free from impurities.
Our Wakame is sustainably hand selected by certified organic, small-scale harvesters, then air dried at low temperatures. These practices ensure minimal environmental impact and promote the sustainable supply of quality sea vegetables.
The Sea Superfood
Seaweed has long been enjoyed by coastal populations around the world. Perhaps its popularity can be attributed to its impressive nutritional profile: seaweed can contain up to 20 times the mineral content of most land vegetables. Seaweed naturally absorbs the nutrients from its marine environment, making sourcing from pure waters vital.
Wakame Flakes are a delicious source of iodine, potassium, Vitamin B6, B12 and Magnesium. Iodine is essential for production of normal thyroid hormones, maintenance of normal healthy skin and energy metabolism.
Power Super Foods raw organic premium grade Wakame Leaf (Undaria pinnatifida) is a mineral dense brown seaweed rich in nutrients and flavour enhancing umami.
As a result of the low temperature drying, you might see white powder on the leaves. This is mannitol, a naturally occurring substance and the source of the delicious sweet salty umami flavour that gives depth of flavour to this wild sea vegetable.
Power Super Foods Wakame Flakes are delicious sprinkled onto miso, noodles, bibimbap bowls and stir fries. They are also a versitile alternative to salt, rendering a nutrient boost to soups, casseroles, stocks and salads.
Wakame seaweed is a good source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, C, E, K, folate and soluble/insoluble fibre, and has among the very highest nutrient-to-calorie ratios (from a vegetarian source). The salty taste is not just salt but a balanced, chelated combination of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron and trace minerals.
