Japan's Favorite Seaweed
Nori is the Japanese name for a delectable red sea alga that grows in the country’s surrounding waters. With celebrated culinary use reported back to the 8th century, Nori has never wavered in its reign as Japan’s most popular sea vegetable -- best known for its role as a wrapper around sushi. Once harvested, raw algal fronds are pressed into thin sheets, a process originating from the ancient art of Japanese papermaking. The resulting delicacy is ready to be enjoyed in all kinds of savory cuisine.
The Power of Nori
Nori is more than tasty reddish-purple algae, but is in fact a low calorie superfood overflowing with bioavailable nutrients. Grown in the certified Sea of Japan, Navitas Naturals Nori contains almost 50% protein – the highest of any seaweed. Saturated with minerals (including ten times more calcium and iron than dairy products, ounce per ounce), and hosting a wide spectrum of bioavailable vitamins, antioxidants, and lignans, nori serves as a nutrient-dense solution the waning mineral levels in land vegetables attributed to poor soil quality.
Umamiis known as “the 5th taste” -- defined as savory, or mouth watering. Indeed, with nori’s salty-sweet and almost meaty flavor, this special seaweed perfectly encapsulates umami essence. Give your taste buds a treat by enjoying nori sheets in the traditional form of a sushi wrapper. Try applying them as a garnish atop rice and salads, or utilize the sheets in a tortilla-style fashion to house savory fillings and vegetables. Many people enjoy nori all by itself as a crispy low-calorie snack.
DID YOU KNOW?
Nori is naturally extremely thin – often only one or two cell layers thick. Despite this physical delicacy, nori maintains a remarkable strength for survival, often regenerating itself even after drying out for several days at a time.

excellent price. tastes better toasted, which takes a little bit of extra work.
Very hard to find a truly raw certified organic nori and this stuff is great! It has the perfect consistency and doesn not smell 'fishy' like some other raw noris i've tried. It's now the only nori I use.
Works well as a shell for my raw salad ingredients, and gives a healthful dose of minerals along with it!
