Product Description
Details

Nori seaweed (Porphyra umbilicus) is most familiar as the wrapping around sushi, and is also known as "purple Laver" due to the inky-black colour, that oddly, turns bright green when toasted. Sea Power Natural Nori is hand-harvested wild from the clean, clear Atlantic Ocean in the Canadian Maritimes then sundried on specially prepared rock fields in a timeless manner for a very low carbon footprint. With a slightly sweet, incredibly mild taste, this might just be our new nutritional power-packed favourite!

Feel like a celebrity! With zero fat, 30% fibre, and a protein content comparable to legumes (30%), this might just be the perfect food for slimmers & Hollywood! And of all the common edible seaweeds, Natural Nori is the highest source of Vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, C & E. It's also a good source of all the carotenes (eg. Vitamin A), potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and by weight, has 10 times more calcium and iron than dairy. But wait, there's more! Natural Nori contains approximately 50% soluble fibre (eg. alginate) -- a very important component of any comprehensive, wholistic dietary program for cholesterol or blood sugar management.

The taste of Nori is sweet and vaguely meaty or nutty, the flavour is SO subtle, its barely there - truly! Natural Nori is always our first recommendation for those culinary virgins who are scared to try seaweed, so come on! Be brave, strap on those training wheels, and give it a whirl! Natural Nori Leaf is even softer than Dulse Leaf, and being paper thin immediately melts in the mouth -- easily chewed, easily swallowed.

The Leaf is small pieces (not suitable for sushi rolling), and the Flakes are milled to a finer size/texture, so it's personal preference really!

The organic convention lists strict criteria for sea vegetable harvesting, including ensuring the grow/harvest areas are well away from industry or high populations, free from heavy metals or other contaminants like pesticide residue, and specify a carefully managed harvest for rapid regrowth and long-term sustainability. You don't even need to worry about radiation as this seaweed is not harvested anywhere near Japan (it's Canadian), and yes, it is rigorously tested to meet human consumption standards both pre-export, and again upon import by Australian Customs/ Quarantine.

This product carries an allergy warning as this seaweed grows in the intertidal zone, supporting natural fish nurseries and other sealife so it is possible that trace amounts of shell particles (eg. periwinkles) could hitch a ride!
This has relevance to those with crustacean/shellfish allergies.

Suggested Use: Leaf is delicious straight out of the bag, or lightly crisp-ed in a dry skillet or similar (colour will change to bright green). Use Leaf/Flakes crumbled over soups, grains, salads, stirfries, bread mixes, stocks, popcorn or any savoury dish. NOTE: Adding seaweeds to the pot when cooking legumes or pulses (like beans or lentils) can shorten cooking time.

ALLERGY WARNING: MAY CONTAIN TRACE AMOUNTS CRUSTACEAN SHELLFISH
