As in I take the dried flakes, and eat pop them straight into my mouth? Bonito flakes are a type of Japanese dried, shredded (very finely, paper thin) tuna.Is it safe to eat dried bonito flak(an ingredient used to make dashi stocks and other broths) right out of bag?
You should be fine... it's like jerky but made with tuna.
In the short term, yes it is safe.
In the long term, probably not. The dried fish is very salty and eating a lot of it in a short period of time can throw your body's metabolites out of whack.
However, there could be differences in brand and preparation methods that might make one brand less safe to eat out of the bag. Your brand might also be less salty than mine.Is it safe to eat dried bonito flak(an ingredient used to make dashi stocks and other broths) right out of bag?
Yes it just dried fish
