  • Ingredients: Dried Hijiki sea vegetable (Hizikia fusiforme)

    Due to the nature of this product, this pack may contain a trace amount of fish, molluscs and/or crustaceans.

    Guidance from food safety authorities suggests limiting consumption of Hijiki to 5g dry weight per day. Hijiki is naturally rich in iodine. People sensitive to the effects of iodine are advised to seek medical advice before consuming this product.

    Product weight - 50g

    Hijiki comes as short black strings that are richly flavoured and make a satisfying dish when sautéed with vegetables or cooked and mixed with tofu or seeds. Hijiki's black colour contrasts well with yellow, orange and green tones of other foods.

    Hijiki contains an abundance of minerals, and it has been said that the thick, lustruous hair of many Japanese people is partly due to their regular intake of hijiki sea vegetable. In fact, there is more calcium in hijiki than that contained in an equal weight of cow's milk.

    Clearspring Hijiki is Hizikia fusiforme, sustainably wild harvested and dried in Japan.
