What is Wakame seaweed

Wakame seaweed (scientific name: Undaria pinnatifida) is a native of Japan and Korea, it is a seaweed of the family Alariaceae. Stick to the rocks of the sea and let the red-brown elongated leaves drift in the sea. When it is alive, it turns reddish brown, and when it gets boiled it turns into bright green. It is disliked in foreign countries, and the only countries to be edible are Japan and Korea.

Although the cold season of February is natural season, there are only about 10% of the shipment amount of all seaweeds, and most of them are aquaculture goods and are circulating all year around the year. We mainly eat it with seaweed salad, vinegared thing, miso soup. Abalone (abalone) etc are also feeding.
