Dried Seaweed Nori (Laver) Sheets! In Japan Laver seaweed is called Nori and you will probably be most familiar with it as the lovely green sheet that enrobes sushi rolls!
Nori Seaweed has "Umami" - which in Japan means an essence of deliciousness and is one of the core tastes including elements of Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Savoury and Salty
These super seaweed sheets can be used for all sorts of things, from making sushi, topping ramen, enhancing salads to simply crumbling into dishes.
The Nori Seaweed used is harvested at the beginning of the Nori season so that its at its best and then dried in sheets to retain flavour and doesnt then become too fibrous and chewy.

"Laver seaweed contains more vitamins and minerals than any land-based vegetable".
"Gram for gram, Laver contains more protein than chicken."
"Laver contains 10x as much vitamin A as spinach and 4x times as much vitamin C as apples”.
Laver seaweed is rich in potassium, manganese, iron, calcium, and protein. The level of protein is the highest of all the seaweeds and said it can be between 30 - 50% protein. I found this percentage staggering and didn't quite believe it so I've been sending a sample of dried laver to the labs every month for a year to monitor protein levels and how they change according to the seasons: On average per 100g sample, dried laver holds 35% protein, which is amazing, this means, gram for gram, Laver contains more protein than chicken.
In addition, Laver seaweed is a powerhouse of vitamins and amino acids and has particularly high concentrations of Vitamin A, B2, B9, and C. Amino acids are essential for muscle development and strength. Vitamin A is important for the immune system and helps support bone health and eye health. Vitamin B9 is important in red blood cell formation and healthy cell growth. Vitamin C helps boost antioxidant levels, lower blood pressure and helps the body repair itself.
“Out of all the seaweeds Laver is the healthiest, it’s the king of all the seaweeds”.
