Description

SeaMama Wakame, or Miyeok in Korean is a subtly sweet and versatile sea vegetable most often used in soups and salads.  The sea vegetable is dark tiny tight curls and is thoroughly washed and ready for use right out of the bag. Wakame has high levels of calcium, iodine, thiamine and niacin and is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acid.  It is low in sodium, fat and cholesterol free.  In Eastern medicine it has been used for blood purification, intestinal strength, healthy skin, hair and reproductive organs, and menstrual regularity.  In Korea, new mothers for centuries have eaten a Wakame soup to assist in their postpartum recovery and rejuvenation (see the SeaMama story below).  And studies have found that a compound found in Wakame known as fucoxanthin can help burn fatty tissue – just one more great reason to eat more Wakame!

SeaMama Wakame Spirals come in a re-sealable ziplock bag.  Once opened securely seal the package and place it in the refrigerator.  The Wakame has a long shelf  life and is indicated on each package.

The SeaMama Story

For centuries, new mothers in Korea have replenished themselves with seaweed soup to assist in their postpartum recovery and rejuvenation.

According to ancient Korean folklore, this postpartum tradition was learned from observing female whales that would seek out & eat strands of seaweed after giving birth.

Today, seaweed soup still remains a staple food in a new mothers postpartum diet in Korean culture. After giving birth, women traditionally eat seaweed soup every day for three straight weeks. According to Korean elders, the rich nutrients found in seaweed are said to nourish and rejuvenate the mother to help bring her body back into balance and well-being. This soup is also served on ones birthday like a birthday cake so to speak. For these reasons, seaweed holds a meaningful and close connection to birth and life.

Today, seaweed is recognized as a vital part of healthy and natural diets worldwide. SeaSnax is delighted to share this special tradition and delicious bowl of rejuvenation.
