Our first love! Alg Seaweed’s Tasmanian Wakame Seaweed Flakes was our first product, circa 2017.
Wakame – 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 variety, its fast-growing and invasive nature makes it currently prohibited to be farmed.
Wakame is 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 moisten. Like all the other high-quality seaweed we have chosen, Tasmanian Wakame is an excellent source of iodine and a great salt substitute.
Makes a great gift
