Customer reviews - Clearspring Wakame 50g


- Wed 14th Oct 2015

We have used in stews and soups. Interesting flavour. Can be chewy if not used correctly.

- Tue 22nd Oct 2013

This is our favourite for adding to soup and gravy, it doesn't taste overly strong. My husband used to complain when I first started using seaweed in the soup, now he complains if I don't! Now when he cooks, he adds this to most dishes he makes.

Review for Clearspring Wakame - Sat 20th Apr 2013

Wakame is delicious - the perfect introduction to sea vegetables, as it has a lovely, mild flavour that is perfect for soups, stews and salads.

Wakame - Mon 7th Nov 2011

Easily rehydrated in water this can be added to salads but is delicious in soups and stir fries. An easy way to get Iodine in your diet, particularly if you are a vegan.

This seaweed has a nice mild flavour and is great in a miso soup. Ideal for people new to sea vegetables.

- Fri 20th May 2011

I LOVE wakame, I think it means little girl in Japanese, anyway it's delicious in salads or just munching on it's own after soaking. I can't say enough about this seaweed, it's perhaps my favourite. The spine is a bit hard but I eat the whole thing, it's delicious. Also wakame is very rich in calcium, so great for the bones and general detox.

easy to add in - Thu 3rd Feb 2011

I knew of the benefits of Wakame, but struggled to know how I would add it into food. Easy - cut a strip into small pieces straight into home made soup. Only needs about 10 mins, doesn't really have much taste but all the goodness.


Use it like a supplement. - Sun 5th May 2013

Rather than buying supplements I like to buy products like this seaweed and sprinkle them on one meal a day, so you integrate that extra goodness into your regular meals. Spirulina is another great food for doing this with! This is a really handy resealable bag so it stay fresh.
