Sea vegetables help alkalise our bodies from the over-acidity of the modern diet and contain 10 to 20 times MORE bioavailable minerals and vitamins than land vegetables, with no fat and low calories ! For example, lack of iodine in the human body (which is widely absent from Australian soils but present in sea vegetables) can create a whole huge range of serious health issues – look them up!

The Sea Superfood


Our Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) seaweed is sustainably harvested from the incredibly pristine, icy cold waters flowing around Tasmania.


"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."

Suggested Uses:
Sprinkle in soups, stocks, stews, miso, stirfrys or savoury dishes. Alternatively, use to ‘salt' pasta or potato boiling water.

Nutritional Benefits



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) of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid (EPA). The salty taste is not just salt but a balanced, chelated combination of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron and trace minerals.

Seaweed Recipes:


1. What does Wakame taste like?
Kinda salty, kinda ‘sea-fresh'.

2. Do I have to hydrate it first?
Not really – some people like the crunchy texture on salads, etc. but we do prefer it softer – personal preference!

3. Is it raw?
Yes…. either shade-dried or sun-dried depending on the Tasmanian weather.

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 green, naturally dried version of this.

6. Is it from Japan? Or China? Or Korea??
No, no, & NO! Our Wakame is from Tasmania.
