Nori Seaweed, An Ocean Fortified Dietary Supplement

Nori is the Japanese name for a type of seaweed from the genus Porphyra that grows wild, like other sea vegetables, off of rocks along shallow coastal shorelines, mainly in the Pacific Ocean as well as the North Atlantic and Irish Sea. Used as whole laver pieces or in the form of sheets, it has been consumed for centuries as a valuable food source in both Japan and Wales. A nutritious sea vegetable, containing many phytonutrients, like minerals and polysaccharides, it is most famous for its use in the popular Japanese food known as sushi. Learn about the highest quality to consume to avoid potentially contaminated varieties.
