More about Clearspring Arame

In Japan, sea vegetables have long been a staple food, prized for their varied flavours, their versatility in use and their natural goodness. They are now recognised as a valuable part of a healthy wholefood diet throughout the world.
Clearspring Arame grows wild along Japan's rocky Pacific coast. The young wide-leaves plants are hand harvested in late summer, simmered all day in their own juices, then cut into thin strips and naturally sun-dried.
Arame's sweet, delicate flavour make it an excellent choice for introducing sea vegetables into your daily diet.

Serving Suggestion

Delicious sauteed with onions, carrots and tofu, or simply boiled after reconstituting for use in salads


To prepare: rinse and then soak arame in cool water for 10-15 minutes (it will double in volume). Drain well and rinse again.


Dried sea vegetable (Eisenia bicyclis)

A lovely, easy to eat member of the sea-veg family. A good one for beginners. Provides a great source of iodine for vegans.
There are few vegan food sources of iodine. It is an essential nutrient for thyroid function. Either supplement or eat sea veg - don't need much to get your RDI.

I have tried several brands and varieties of sea vegetables but always come back to this one, as the strands rehydrate well and are dainty enough to add to salads. The taste is mild and doesnt overpower the rest of the meal and though it may seem expensive, a little goes a long way.

Clearspring arame - Fri 19th Jul 2013

Unlike some other sea veg this does not have a "fish" smell. Only a little is needed so while it is expensive it is very good value for money. It is also handy as it last a long time on the shelf. Adds flavour to many dishes.

Very nutritious, this gives a good sea taste if you're looking for a fish replacement. I use it in a moroccan-style stew.

A fantastic alternative to salt and full of iodine and other minerals. My favourites are Clearspring's Dulse and Arame.

This does really bulk up when soaked, so a little does go a long way, and a good source of iodine.

Easy to use - Tue 20th Dec 2011

Very handy to just sprinkle a little into soup etc to add some green colour and texture (and iodine) :) (let it simmer for a while to soften up) A little goes a long way, great for a tight budget like mine :)

Arame - Wed 31st Aug 2011

If you have never used sea vegetables before, this one is recommended. It is easy to prepare, has a soft texture & a mild, sweet taste. Its black colour looks attractive contrasted with orange carrot, green broccoli & white tofu. Not only that, it's packed with nutrients.

Add a pinch of this to soups and stews to boost the nutrition of the dish!
