The Sea Superfood
"Hi Power Super Foods. I would just like to say a BIG THANKS to you all for bringing such awesome products to the public. I would also like to say I bought the SEA POWER Dulse Flakes and saw that you donate a percentage to Sea Shepherd. It is AWESOME! I am a crew member on Board the Bob Barker and was stunned when I got back from shopping and read that you donated a percentage to SSCS and showed all the crew -- so big smiles everywhere knowing that other people care about the marine eco system too. Will be recommending to everyone I know. Thanks heaps." M.M./seashepherd
Suggested Uses: Sprinkle in soups, stocks, stews, miso, stirfrys or savoury dishes. Alternatively, use to ‘salt' pasta or potato boiling water.
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.
1. What does Wakame taste like? Kinda salty, kinda ‘sea-fresh'. 2. Do I have to hydrate it first? No these flakes have a soft texture 3. Is it raw? Yes…. either shade-dried or sun-dried. 4. Is it irradiated? No! Double NO!! A food can not be certified organic AND irradiated – the two are mutually exclusive. 5. Is it just like the bright green Wakame you are served in sushi restaurants? NO, that is actually a highly processed version of Wakame, involving nutrient loss and a high carbon footprint. Ours is the natural dark green, naturally dried version of this. 6. Is it from Japan? Or China? Or Korea?? No, no, & NO! Our Wakame is from Canada.
