Wakame is a rich green colored seaweed that is used frequently in Japanese cuisine. Wakame can grow up to an inch a day, and has a delicate consistency, which makes it an ideal seaweed to use in a wide range of culinary applications.
Traditionally it is used in soups like miso soup, as well as salads.
Wakame contains a compound known as fucoxanthin, which is a marine carotenoid that exhibits anti-inflammatory qualities and is known for its fat burning properties.
Fucoxanthin has also also been shown to help people who experience blood sugar imbalance.
Many health benefits of this seaweed come from the diverse spectrum of vitamins and minerals contained within the wakame, including:
- Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B2, B9
