Clearspring - Japanese Hijiki Dried Sea Vegetable (50g)

  • HK$13800

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.

Ingredients: Dried Hijiki sea vegetable (Sargassum fusiforme)
