Full Description

For delicious wakame in a second, try Clearspring Instant Wakame Flakes: the convenient way to add the delicious taste and nutrition of wakame sea vegetable to your food.

They are delicious in miso and clear soups, add them at the end of cooking time to retain their delicate flavour and appearance. They are also a great addition to stir-fries and salads, in which case they should be soaked in lukewarm water for 2-3 minutes before using. 

Known in Japan as fueru wakame or ‘expanding wakame’, the product contains nothing but top quality wakame. The flakes are made by a simple process where the wakame is blanched for a few seconds before being dried and packed. 

The wakame itself is cultivated on ropes and harvested in a renowned area of quality wakame production in Japan. The wakame spores are sown in June or July. Eight months or so later in March the microscopic spores have grown to become fronds anywhere between 1.3 and 2 meters in length, which are then harvested from their ropes.

Superb in soups and stews or simply soak and add to salads.
