Eden Mekabu is the ruffled. Flowering sprout of wakame seaweed located just above the root. Wild grown and hand harvested from the pristine, environ-mentally protected waters of Ise Bay, Japan. Mekabu is cleaned and sun dried before misting with pure water, shredding and final drying. Highly valued for its beneficial compounds such as fucoidan, a polysaccharide especially rich in this sporophyll that gives mekabu its unique texture. Mild and sweet, concentrated nourishment from the sea.
Soak 1 to 2 tablespoons in hot water to cover for 10 minutes, drain, soak in cold water for 2 minutes and drain again. It's now ready to eat, no cooking needed. Eat with brown rice vinegar, with grains and vegetables, or in soups just before serving.
