Unlock the secrets to Korean style cooking and flavors with all-natural dried seaweed handpicked from the Eastern shores of the Korean peninsula. This native Korean seaweed features a nice, springy, chewy texture that is packed with nutrients such as Vitamin B6, iodine, magnesium, iron, protein, riboflavin, dietary fiber, antioxidants, calcium, and detoxifiers. It’s so dense with nutrients and amazing flavors that when boiled it turns water into thick, rich, and umami-packed broth instantly. The broth is as rich as beef stock!
Wild native Korean seaweed is handpicked fresh by specialized divers who are experts at navigating the local tides and rocky Eastern Korean shores for fresh and healthy seaweed plants. Divers time their expeditions with the seasons from the beginning of April to the middle of May when the seaweed naturally reaches peak flavor. The seaweed is collected from underwater stones using meticulous, non-invasive, eco-friendly and sustainable methods before being cleaned and trimmed for drying. The 100% natural seaweed is dried using traditional techniques with the sea breeze and modern hygienic facilities to intensify its flavor capacity and preserve its bountiful nutritional benefits without the use of preservatives or additives. Premium dried seaweed is the key behind many Korean soups and seafood dishes such as Korean seaweed soup (miyeok-guk) as a rich, flavorful broth/stock. The seaweed is so fresh that when rehydrated it expands to its original size!
