Founded by patriarch Cheolsoo Song, family-owned Badasoop has been providing gamtae using their patented skill sets since 1980 and have since been regarded as a leading force in all things seaweed. This blend is specially created by Badasoop using 100% locally sourced seaweeds. Create your own seaweed salad by soaking these beauties in cold water - 3 minutes if you like yours to have a bite, 5 minutes if you prefer your seaweed tender. We love the salad dressed simply with ponzu and perilla oil, or soy sauce, sesame oil and a touch of vinegar. We also enjoy adding some into noodle soup for an extra layer of flavor and texture.

Badasoop Seaweed Salad Key Ingredients
Glueweed (Gloiopeltis furcata) Known for its unique pink-purplish hue, this red algae has a thicker in the stem than its cousin 'saemogasari’ (gloiopeltis tenax). Only hand harvested in small quantities, this uncommon seaweed is one of the most sought after in Korea and Japan.
Gloiopeltis Tenax This rare seaweed is impossible to farm, but rather grows by attaching itself to rocks on the shorelines of only the cleanest ocean waters. Hand harvested in limited quantities, gloiopeltis tenax is especially popular in the Japanese market.
Mekabu The ruffled, flowering sprout located at the base of the Wakame, is rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
Gracilaria A red algae known for its crispy texture like a celery with a slightly salty and piquant taste. This long, thin seaweed, commonly called “noodle of the ocean,” only grows in the cleanest ocean water.
Kombu This Kombu, from the clean ocean waters of southern South Korea, is hand-harvested at knee height to maintain its deep, clear green hue, before being cleaned, cut and dried with no added salt.
Wakame The leafy part of the Wakame provides a salty yet subtly sweet flavor. The freshest wakame maintains a strong smell of the sea. Rich in iodine, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals, wakame is known to help stimulate liver function, removing toxins and improving blood circulation.
Agar This jelly-like Agar is made from the red algae umutgasari (gelidium amansii) and 100% natural 100% Korean ingredients.
