Description

Atlantic wakame is closely related to Japanese wakame and is also known as dabberlocks. In Icelandic, we call it marinkjarni. Wakame has a mild flavor which blends well with other vegetables. Wakame is excellent for salads, soups, sauces, stews and casseroles, and can be wrapped around fish or savory fillings or can be toasted as a snack and crumbled as a condiment.

Atlantic WAKAME is a fat free, cholesterol free food, rich in vitamins A and B, and essential minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.
Seaweed Iceland’s Atlantic Wakame grows wild and is harvested by hand from pure Icelandic waters. We dry it using renewable geothermal energy to bring you the highest quality food source with a low carbon footprint.

Further Information

Seaweed Iceland is located in Grindavik, a small fishing village on the south coast of the Reykjanes peninsula. This sparsely inhabited area features pristine waters that are free of pollutants, and well suited to growing various types of seaweed. We take pride in harvesting all of our seaweed by hand. The harvesting season lasts from early spring until late autumn, which allows us to pick different varieties of seaweed at their peak. We are careful to harvest the seaweed in a sustainable manner and always leave enough plants for regrowth. Once we have completed the harvest, we air dry theseaweed at low temperatures (below 28 degrees celcius) in a closed drying facility. The electricity to do so comes from a geothermal plant 10 kilometers away and is completely renewable. We filter the intake air and control moisture throughout the drying process, and our dried products are then stored at low temperatures in a climate-controlled facility.
