    Eden Foods Arame Sea Vegetable

    EDEN Arame Sea Vegetable is a brown algae cultivated off the shores of Ise (ee-say) Bay, Japan where it thrives in cool waters of the arctic Japan current. The sea there is surrounded by National forests and mountains and is known as the 'Ocean by Mountains' area. Rivers nourish the bay adding to a mineral rich environment. This area leads all of Japan in ecology movements. Development is forbidden to ensure future generations the legacy of this famous edible seaweed resource. Only the most tender fronds of arame are selected and hand harvested in the summer. The fronds are washed and sun dried. After drying, the fronds are then steamed for five hours to soften it and enhance its color, then finely shredded to make it easy to use and quick to prepare before naturally air drying. EDEN Arame Eisenia bicyclis is a wavy sea vegetable with two thin, oval fronds. Each year fronds are shed and new ones develop creating a branched and feathery plant. Although, when dried and cooked arame resembles hiziki in color and appearance, it is softer, more delicate and much milder in flavor. Arame is the sweetest all the sea vegetables with a pleasing texture and appearance. These qualities make it the most appealing to those just beginning to familiarize their palate with sea vegetables.

    Arame has been a traditional part of the Japanese diet since ancient times. EDEN Arame is low in sodium, low calorie, and fat and cholesterol free. It is a good source of magnesium and calcium. According to the FDA, "Low fat diets rich in fruits and vegetables (foods that are low in fat and may contain dietary fiber, Vitamin A, or Vitamin C) may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, a disease associated with many factors." EDEN Arame is rich in dietary fiber and a good source of vitamin A. Also, "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of hypertension or high blood pressure, a disease associated with many factors." It also provides 102 mg of Omega 3, 367 mg of Omega 6, and 191 mg of Omega 9 essential fatty acids (EFAs), necessary for both mental and physical well being.

    EDEN Arame may be cooked with whole grains, in soups, stir fries, vegetable dishes, homemade breads, stuffing, salads, croquettes, and in making grain, tofu and tempeh burgers. Arame doubles in size when cooked. To use, rinse quickly, soak for 5 minutes in cold water, chop if desired, and add to your recipe. EDEN Arame makes an excellent side dish when cooked with sautéed sweet vegetables, seasoned with EDEN Ume Plum Vinegar or Brown Rice Vinegar and EDEN Shoyu Soy Sauce.

    About Eden Foods

    Eden was founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1968 by a group of friends who were trying to source good food. They were motivated by their studies of a worldwide phenomenon centered upon macrobiotics and its principles of whole grains, plant based protein, and locally grown food produced without toxic chemicals, etc. Because they couldn't find this kind of food in the grocery stores, they started the Eden Food co-op, placing $200 orders to Erewhon in Boston and Chico-San in California. They also began traveling rural roads to find farmers who were interested in organic farming methods. The Eden co-op became a natural food store offering whole grains and beans, soyfoods, sea vegetables, miso, cereals, vegetable oils, sesame butter, nut butters, and the like.
