Goma Wakame

History – The origin of goma wakame is not known. Many believe it to have been created by Japanese restaurants in Europe. Seaweed was first consumed in Japan at least 1500 years ago, according to early written records. During the Asuka Era (600-700 AD) and Nara Era (700-800 AD) seaweed was only consumed by the Japanese aristocracy. Until the Middle Ages there was only wild seaweed, which limited it as a food source.
