Mehibi, ie. dried and thinly sliced Mekabu seaweed. Mekabu refers to the base of the stem of wakame seaweed where the leaves bunch together, forming a sort of 'pine cone'. It's bouncier and chewier than the leafy parts of wakame and it's lauded for it's health benefits. It is highly nutritious, high in calcium, and low in calories. It contains high amounts of fucoidan and alginate acid, which are known respectively to boost the immune system + promote hair health, and improve conditions in the stomach and intestines. Potassium also helps lower blood pressure, and iodine boosts metabolism.

In Japan, seaweeds such as these are enjoyed as a delicacy.
