Wakame is a type of kelp and is closely related to another popular seaweed, konbu. Emerald Cove Silver Grade Pacific Wakame is cultivated on rope nets spread between posts planted in the sea bed in the shallow areas off the south shore of the Shandong Peninsula in North China, near Korea. The cultivation process is similar to Nori cultivation except that with Nori the spores are started in shallow pools on shore, and then transplanted to the nets. Wakame naturally attaches itself to the nets directly from the sea water. Eighty per cent of all wakame consumed in Japan now comes from China and Korea. After harvesting, it is briefly washed and cut into convenient, ready-to-eat pieces. These pieces are laid out to dry in the sun for several days until completely crisp and dry, and are then packaged.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is my first experience with wakame.I simply hrdrate it in water for 30 minutes, drain the water out.Put the water in the dogs dish instead of throwing it away-THEY LOVE IT.Then eat it uncooked room temp with some toasted sesame oil on it.A small serving is all you need to feel satisfied.
Tested several wakames and this is without a doubt the best so far. Color is good dark green, harder stems have been removed, flakes are nice size and the taste is great. Easy to use just by tossing it into soups and salads. I prefer not to cook it much so if am preparing miso for example I will add the wakame after the miso paste and just let it sit for a moment. It rehydrates fast enough just like that and doesn't become disgustingly mushy. Some cheaper wakame just breaks apart and is very slimey, but this one holds it together and stays more like a salad leaf or something. I also like that the pack size is bigger than several other brands despite the price not being higher, so I don't instantly run out of it :)
