Our first love! Alg Seaweed’s first product, circa 2017.
A premium ‘weed’ from the ocean
Wakame was introduced to Australia through ballast waters of visiting ships and was only identified in 1988.
Being an introduced seaweed, it’s fast growing and invasive nature makes it currently prohibited to be farmed.
Wakame are harvested by commercial divers in the cleanest Southern part of Tasmania six weeks a year during winter. The seaweed is washed, then cut and freeze-dried.
You will soon fall in love with the wakame flakes which are crunchy at first but chewy as they moistens. Like any other high quality seaweed that we have chosen, it is an excellent source of iodine and a great salt substitute.
One memorable gift
Surely, no one thinks about seaweed when they think about Australia. Why not surprise someone with this lovely gift to showcase what amazing products Australia has to offer?
