Why You’ll Love It

EMERALD COVE® Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) is grown on nets hung between posts secured on the shallow ocean bottom off the northern shore of the Shandong Peninsula in North China, the closest point to Japan in China. The wakame spores attach themselves to the nets naturally so no actual cultivation is necessary and no fertilizer or herbicide is used. Familiar to sushi enthusiasts from its use in miso soup, wakame is also used in seaweed salads. EMERALD COVE® Wakame is ready to eat and can be tossed right out of the bag into miso soup. Because of its superior alkalinity, wakame is extremely beneficial in helping to maintain the alkaline/acid balance necessary for a healthy human body.

Reviews For Pacific Wakame

Based on 5 Reviews

A staple in our house

Wakame is a delightful sea vegetable. I like adding it to cooked quinoa.

- Krystalle

easy to use

Not an expert in cooking with seaweed, but this is an easy and tasty addition to basic soups. Since it expands in liquid I break it up into smaller pieces before mixing it into soup. A little goes a long way.

- Sara

Very impressed

Delicious and expands a lot when rehydrated. Excellent for use in soups & with pasta. Has mild flavor & slightly leathery texture, not slippery. Also great eaten dry just don't eat too much at once! Doesn't have the super salty taste that is problematic with some seaweeds.

- Brigette

Quick and Delicious

I have been using this Wakami for years, paying too much for it at Whole Foods. A little miso, some broth, ginger, garlic or whatever flavors you prefer and some Wakami, and you have a quick and delicious soup. Add your favorite protein [I like a seafood mix of scallops, calamari and shrimp] and it's a meal. I'm so psyched to see Thrive carries it! Prep is super simple - just add water to the amount you want, let it rehydrate for a few minutes, strain and add. Love it!

- Helena

Good stuff!

Great for my miso soup! A little goes a long way. It really expands a lot when soaked, before adding it to soup! Great price here.
