Best ever sea veggi
 August 19, 2015
" Seaweed Iceland is free of industrial waste that had been dumped in oceans as is the case with much of the sea weed bought from Japanese sources. More than 80% of Japanes seaweed is grown in China along industrial centers. I love its purity, wholeness and their method of drying. I soak it for about ten minutes before cutting it, and add it to virtually every recipe. I highly recommend it! "

very thick and textured
 December 18, 2014
" I bought this based on the fact that it's hand-harvested from clean oceanic waters, but they literally took whole fronds that are THICK.....I had to use scissors to cut the fronds into 1/4" to 1/2" size strips to add to soups.....even then, it did not soften much once boiled....I was thinking it would have that thinner wakame I am used to when buying from Japanese grocery stores for miso soups, etc....I'd say this is a product for die-hard foodies who like the textures of foods in their most 'natural' form even when not ideal in texture for the palette.

So versatile and good
 December 31, 2013
" Just a quick soak in water and it's ready to use. I keep it simple with just a sprinkle of Bragg's Liquid Aminos and it's ready to eat. I love it as a quick snack or a side dish. "
