Wakame seaweed has a similar nutritional content to Kombu, though Kombu contains more iodine and wakame contains more magnesium. As with all seaweed, it is nutrient-rich and packed with protein, fibre and other minerals, and has few calories. Wakame, when added to food, softens the fibres of the foods and is therefore ideal for cooking with tough ingredients such as beans. This helps to aid digestion and prevent flatulence.
