The wakame in our seaweed salad is cultivated in wild, pristine seas off the coast of South Korea, and is certified safe.
Like wild fish and cultured shellfish, our naturally ocean-grown wakame cannot be certified organic under current USDA rules, even though it's raised without synthetic inputs.
Wakame is one of the healthiest foods on the planet, packed with vitamin A, minerals, organic iodine, the healthful omega-3 fat known as EPA, and a beneficial antioxidant called fucoxanthin.
In Traditional Chinese medicine, wakame is prized for “blood purification,” intestinal, skin and hair health, immune support, and overall wellness.
Wakame has been called “women’s seaweed,” because it’s loaded with iron and bone-building calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Chinese medical tradition holds that wakame possesses diuretic (anti-bloating) properties.
Preliminary research in rodents suggests that wakame may support weight control and metabolic health … effects attributed to its uncommon carotenoid-class antioxidant, fucoxanthin.
Finally, wakame ranks among the richest sources of fucoidan … a sulfated polysaccharide that’s shown promise in important aspects of immune-system health.

"A favorite. Wish sugar wasn’t an ingredient." Review: We love this seaweed salad. Unfortunately we limit our intake of it because it’s made with sugar. I wish we could buy the seaweed plain and make the salad as we prefer or they’d be more focused on keeping the dish super healthy and drop the sugar. Thank you for sharing your feedback. We send all suggestions to our Product's Team and they take all into great consideration. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team
"Tasty" Review: Tastes great but a bit too sweet. If it had less sugar or none at all I'd give it 5 stars.
"Not for me" Review: I always get the Seaweed Salad when eating at a restaurant, and love it. I purchased this because of all the great reviews - also said it was sweet. Unfortunately, mine was not. I thought it was terrible. Tried it three different times. It even upset my stomach which was surprising to me. I wound up tossing it (sorry to say). Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment about this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team
