Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, Alaria, Wild Atlantic Wakame, 2 oz (56 g)10 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Great in Salads • Snacks • Soups • Stirfries
Our wild Alaria comes to you without processing or washing out any of its mineral richness. Please check for occasional tiny hidden pebbles or shells in the fronds. Some plants may be partially covered with a white powder of natural salts and sugars that precipitate from their cells during storage. To minimize, seal unused plants in this ziplock out of sunlight, heat or moisture.
Alaria is at its best cooked, but the thin edges of the frond will be tender before the central midrib. To reduce cooking time (usually 20 min.), cut out these midrib altogether, or cook them separately. Or pressure cook the whole plant for 5-6 min. Pre-soaking for 1-12 hrs. or pre-roasting for 3 min. at 300° will also reduce usual cooking time by 5-10 min.
Alaria in Soups
- A mild, smooth taste that compliments most grain, bean or broth-based soups.
- Turns a delicate green color when cooked.
- Soft textured frond, crunch of midrib, adds variety.
- Add 5 inch strip, whole or chopped, per qt. of liquid.
- Cooks in about 20 min. See basic prep for quicker cooking.
- May be substituted for Japanese Wakame, but needs a little more cooking time.
Low temperature dried alaria.

i tend to eat my seaweed straight outta the bag. the nutrition and important elements found in sea veggies have been quite beneficial to my body, namely my thyroid. with the maine coast brand, i can honestly say that there products are priced well, and a decent choice amongst the competition. nothing spectacular but good enough. this seaweed is on the mild side........... a polar opposite to something along the lines of a wild dulse
The Wakame Vegetable has been a fairly 'mew' addition to my choice of spices. Once I got used to the 'flavor' it has become a vaforite, in soup's & salad's. I pay special attention to where it is harvested & will only purchase Sea Vegetables from our East Coast. Taking into cosideration the desaster & it's posible affects on Sea Vegetables form the Earthquakes in other parts of the Pacific.
