Hijiki is a distinctive jet-black sea vegetable that grows on the ocean floor in long thin strands. It is most widely popular as an ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It is naturally rich in flavour with a delicate texture. Its colour contrasts beautifully with other vibrant ingredients and works wonderfully well when combined with grains and other vegetables.

What is the difference between long hijiki and short hijiki?
In Japan, there are two types of hijiki: the longer and tougher stems are called naga hijiki (長ひじき: meaning long hijiki) and they look like black spaghetti after its cooked, and the shorter type called me hijiki (芽ひじき:meaning hijiki sprouts) that looks like tea leaves. They can both be prepared in the same way and can be replaced by one or another. 
This product is the long hijiki.

You can let your hair down now!

Packed with dietary fibre and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, Hijiki sea vegetables are usually consumed in small amounts. If you are looking for nutrient rich food that will help you glow, and particularly grow healthy, lustrous hair, Hijiki should be on your menu 1-2 week.
