Common or vulgar name:

Algae arame

Arame is a seaweed widely consumed in Asian countries, especially in Japan. It is meatier than wakame and has a milder flavor, which makes it suitable for any palate. It is difficult to find it fresh and the most common thing is to buy it dehydrated, which forces us to subject it to a rehydration process, which is simple and fast, as 10 or 15 minutes of immersion in warm water is enough. The rehydration water is usually discarded.

Although arame can be incorporated as an ingredient in hot dishes, it is more common for it to be eaten in salads, particularly mixed among other ingredients with seeds and sesame oil, which combines very well.

Arame is very rich in mineral salts and fiber, and low in fat, which makes it a very healthy and highly recommended ingredient. It is rich in alginate, an important culinary thickener, an ingredient for which it is also cultivated and collected. The flavor is sweet and makes a wonderful addition to stir-fries, soups, salads, and grain dishes. This seaweed must be soaked before being added to food. When cooked, its size doubles. It is rich in Mannitol, a natural sugar that moderates the glycemia curve and is highly indicated for diabetics.

It provides mucilages, soluble viscous fiber that facilitates the protection of internal mucous membranes, especially the digestive system.

It also has a non-negligible contribution of minerals such as iron, iodine and calcium and a low sodium content. Vegetable iron is less bioavailable, therefore the consumption of the algae is recommended together with foods rich in Vitamin C.

Apart from the benefits indicated, it is recommended for cleansing the reproductive and urinary system.

Seaweed can be bought dry in organic, health food or oriental supermarkets and hydrated at home to be incorporated into soups, salads, scrambled eggs, woks, etc. These algae are extraordinarily healthy and have many health benefits.

They are low in calories and fat, but very high in nutrients (mostly bioavailable). Seaweed is especially rich in B vitamins, especially folic acid and vitamins C, E and K.
