1.5oz Whole Leaf Alaria Wakame Seaweed harvested from the Coast of Maine

MOFGA Certified Organic

Product of USA

Latin Name: Alaria esculenta

Harvested in Maine, Alaria is a great substitute for wakame as it is so similar to traditional Japanese wakame. Alaria is the most delicate of the brown seaweeds. It can be used to create a Miso soup with a wild, yet delicate flavor. Alaria, as with many sea vegetables, contains many of the vitamins and minerals needed to live a healthy life. 

Nutritional Values 

Alaria (alaria esculenta) has one of the highest sources of calcium. It is rich in B complex vitamins, vitamins A, C, and K. High in protein, iron, magnesium, iodine, sodium, chromium, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, and dietary fiber. Alaria is almost identical to Japanese wakame biologically and nutritionally.  

Culinary Uses 

Alaria is excellent for Miso soup and makes calcium rich vegetable soups, and stews. It imparts a chicken-like flavor when cooked with rice. Whole leaf alaria can be used uncooked in salads if pre-soaked, marinated in lemon juice, blanched or steamed. It can also be quick roasted and enjoyed as 'chips'. Alaria has more delicate taste but needs a longer cooking time (40 minutes) than the cultivated Japanese wakame (15 minutes). Soak prior to cooking and use the soaking water. Powdered Alaria is a great addition to any energy or protein drink that needs mineral fortification (particularly calcium).
