I read the other review and had to laugh. The white spots you see on the seaweed is normal and is from salt deposits. It's normal to see it on seaweed, and I think it occurs when it's dried. This link has more details on it: [...] "Note: Dashi Kombu will usually have white spots that may look like, but is not, mold. These white spots are called "mannitto" or "umami seibun" in the Japanese language and are part of the Dashi Kombu. These white spots occur as part of the natural drying process of the product and bring out the flavor; it is recommended not to wash Dashi Kombu before use in cooking."

I've eaten a lot of seaweed, many different kinds, and the white spots are normal. Anyhow, I love this brand Eden Foods, and regularly buy this seaweed, because this company is reputable. They do not source from China, and this seaweed actually comes from Japan, which is more reliable, and trustworthy in my opinion. Eden foods imports a lot of their Japanese items straight from Japan, where it's made traditionally, and without chemicals, etc. Taste their toasted sesame oil. True it's expensive, but if you've tried the organic toasted sesame oils by Spectrum, Napa Valley, etc, they do not compare in regards to flavor. The Eden Foods toasted sesame oil tastes exactly how it should, while the ones from the American companies are very bland in flavor. When it comes to Asian foods, I think Eden foods has the advantage.

This is a good value, it is the whole plant from spiny base where it is more hard stalk than leafy seaweed meat. My complaint is that the product is WAY SALTY compared to the same item pulled from the Pacific Coast. Too salty to eat without rinsing. Way too salty.

It is just hard to believe that all that salt is just from it being harvested, hung and dried.

If adding to soups or rinsed before eating, it would be fine. You can't just snack on this straight because, well, if you did not catch it, WAAAY too salty =)

I've been eating this for years. It's a little fishy and a little salty during the first 3 - 7 days. Most people probably should add a little to soups or stews. I've been eating it plain out of the bag since the late 80's. Never had an issue except now it's difficult to find and a little pricey. Eden checks to make sure that there aren't any radiation issues related to the Japanese earthquake and nuclear power plant. Just in case. I still think it's great and eat some on a regular basis. It's suppose to be salty. The alkaline minerals help keep your body less acidic and healthy. Better to be slightly alkaline than acid. Unless you don't care about healthy bones and teeth.

I love to eat wakame and I am interested to try out this product. It is a huge packet and in terms of pricing, it is not expensive compared to the other brands.

However, I noticed there are many white spots on the wakame. I am not even consuming it, and no, I am not going to purchase it again!!
