[Gijang Mulsan] Haenyeo Diver Seaweed (130g)


[Kijang] Hanyeo Diver Seaweed

One of Korea's Best Seaweed

[Gijang Mulsan] Haenyeo Diver Seaweed

Today, we present to you one of Korea's most premium seaweeds. If you enjoy Korean Seaweed Soup, this will be a special treat!

This premium seaweed is grown out in the waters of Gijang, Busan. This coastline is blessed with an abundance of sunshine throughout the year, as well as high tides. To survive in the deep waves, the seaweed here develops firm but flexible stalks (stipes) and wavy blades. It is packed with nutrition from the sea and has a nice chewing texture.

Gijang Mulsan harvests its kelp with the help of Korea's iconic Haenyeo Divers. Hanyeo Divers translates to "Sea Women" in Korean - they are elderly women divers have been catching seafood for a living since 1629. With their expertise, the companies identify the best seaweed in the area. 

This seaweed is not pre-cut. It's carefully packaged as one whole piece. Before cooking, simply cut a small piece off with a pair of kitchen scissors and soak it in cold water. Within 5 minutes, the dried seaweed will blossom into its natural form.  And you'll see a notable difference in texture, taste and quality from regular seaweed!

Note: Gijang Mulsan's seaweed was selected as a gift item to the Korea Blue House, the official residence of the Korean President!

Hanyeo Divers are brought in to help harvest the seaweed.

The seaweed is then dried out under the sun, with gusts from the ocean breeze.

After it is fully dried out, the seaweed is packaged.

Premium quality, deeper taste

Regular Seaweed

Regular seaweed is often mashed and tangled when left out to dry.  The thin blades wrap around the stem, forming thin, brittle strands.

Premium Seaweed
(Kijang Haenyeo Diver Seaweed)

Premium seaweed - as it dries - is carefully folded and layered on top of each other - so that the blades and stems are clearly visible and distinguishable.
