They sell kelp noodles here, which are described (on a package) as natural, raw kelp that has been stripped of its outer skin (leaving a clear, thin interior). They’re preserved in sodium alginate, a natural salt that’s also seaweed derived... I wonder if that's what you had, or if some other seaweed makes noodles, too.

how digestible are they for you?   I find that without cooking or pulverising Raw seaweed, that it pretty much passes through you.  Maybe they have allowed the product to go through some predigestion or softening process?  They also look a little pale in comparison to the seaweads from our Atlantic and Pacific coasts??

Eveheart, Van,

These sea weed noodles are the real thing.

I asked our maids again who come from various different provinces and they all say that yes, this is the real thing, straight from the ocean.

One native term is "pancit pancitan", one native term is "gulaman".

They are 100% sure that these sea weeds I got are the same natural sea weed they get at home straight out of the ocean.

Digestion was very much like any real raw food.  Digested fast and well.

One native term is "pancit pancitan", one native term is "gulaman".

Common, local names can be tricky. If I google pancit pancitan, a different plant is identified, not a seaweed. If I google gulaman, it returns what we call agar, a processed seaweed product used mostly as a vegetarian gelatin.

They have seen these (first hand) sea weed noodles get harvested straight from the ocean.
So this is definitely natural.

No argument from me, but your first questions were

  To those questions, I responded what I've seen as seaweed noodles and what the internet gave me for pancit pancitan, and gulaman. It's not so much a mystery as to how names get all confused from one country to the next. Very often, it's just a question of substitution of ingredients; other times, it is just a convenience of translation.

I found these noodles in a local Korean market, sold as "sea tangle noodles" made from kelp (laminaria). They say they are "raw," but they are a highly processed mixture of kelp and sodium alginate (seaweed gum extracted from kelp, similar to agar or carrageenen). So raw, yes; unprocessed, no!

These are what you saw?

Must be different from the ones I got.  The ones in the pics I posted come straight from the ocean.
