Dried/instant wakame seaweed
Among seaweeds, wakame contains a comparatively high amount of calcium, and is said to be effective as a remedy for constipation and to make hair shiny. Dried wakame must first be reconstituted in water, after which dousing it with boiling water and then dipping it in cold water will enhance the color and texture. Instant wakame can be used straight from the package in soups and simmered dishes.
