This dried Mekabu is produced from wild grown and hand harvested Undaria found in the pristine waters of Tasmania’s South East Coast. Mekabu is the ruffled frills at the base of the Undaria plant, highly prized for its health benefits. Mekabu is well known for its fucoidan content which has health promoting properties including antiviral activities. This product is naturally dried. The texture of the hydrated product allows for use in soups, salads, traditional Japanese pickles.
Seaweed provides all 56 minerals and elements you need to survive. No other plant contains all 56. Seaweed also has a surplus of iodine, a hard-to-find element necessary for healthy brain and thyroid function.
All seaweeds are rich sources of protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium, iron and folate. The kelp varieties also contain high levels of lignans, which are a type of antioxidant. Cooking rice & other grains with some wakame thrown in supercharges your meal or soak wakame until soft and add to your favourite salad.
Our supply of mekabu is seasonal and we expect resupply in Sep/Oct. Message us if you'd like to be notified when it's back in stock.
