Ecospirulina produces spirulina microalgae and relies on algae as food for sustainable development. The high nutritional level they provide and their sustainable cultivation method are essential to nourish people while respecting the planet.
We are so convinced by the quality of Algas La Patrona's products and its company philosophy of preserving the marine environment that we want to create synergies with this very respectful Galician SME.
Wakame seaweed is one of the most famous seaweeds in Japanese cuisine. It has a flat, elongated, dark brown, flat sheet shape. It greens when cooked. It has a crunchy and fleshy texture. Gradually, those who introduce it into their diet benefit from nutritional properties that other foods do not provide.
It can be eaten both raw and cooked. In raw form, it is advisable to rehydrate the seaweed in warm water for about 10 minutes. For cooking, 5 minutes are enough in hot water, but it can be incorporated into stews and sauces that cook for longer periods of time.
It provides a slight taste of the sea.
In addition to its very complete nutritional contribution (vitamins, minerals and trace elements, proteins, carbohydrates), it provides soluble fibre. Soluble fibres promote intestinal transit without entailing intestinal pain.
Instructions for use:
Wakame seaweed can be considered as a condiment. It is usually added to cooked dishes such as fish stews, sauces, quiches, etc. It is also consumed raw once rehydrated, in salads, on toast or canapés and goes perfectly with fresh cheese, smoked salmon, etc. When dried, it can be reduced to small pieces and sprinkled on top of any dish as salt. It adds a salty flavour to dishes and enriches them nutritionally.
The most creative people will use it in croquettes, hamburgers, rice dishes, scrambled eggs, even as a garnish for meats.
