Nori – natural supplement

Nori – natural supplement Today, I would like to talk about Nori, the seaweed – the most popular edible sea vegetable (seaweed) in the world! All seaweeds are high in nutrients, and seaweeds contain ten to twenty times the minerals of land plants (vegetables) and have an abundance of vitamins and other health promoting compounds.  However, Nori is special! It is like a supplement – it is filled with healthy components.

Do you know what is in nori?

• High in Protein: about 48% dry weight of nori is made up of protein – the highest of all seaweeds!

• High in amino acids level – the highest of all seaweeds! • The highest vitamin A (beta-carotene) content of all seaweeds! • Rich in good oils and the highest EPA (one of Omega 3 oils) in all seaweeds! (About 50% of the dry weight of nori.) • Rich in minerals, iron, folic acids, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, copper, and manganese.

• Rich in vitamins C, E, U, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12. • Rich in dietary fiber: About 35% dietary fiber in the dry weight of nori.

•Antioxidant-rich – nori is a fantastic source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and taurine. All have antioxidant properties. Nori is truly Japanese superfood, isn’t’ it?!

Tips for choosing nori The best quality nori is a black-purple colour with a shiny surface. Good quality nori should be shiny and smooth on one side and rough on the other, bad quality nori is often rough on both sides. Be sure to buy proper, good quality nori. High-quality nori contains more nutrition, has a softer texture and a stronger umami flavour.

It is also best to check its origin – Japanese and Korean nori contains double the amount of taurine (one of the amino acids that have many health benefits and is lacking in typical Western diets) compared to Chinese nori. Korean_store_bought Be careful store bought seasoned nori both Japanese and Korean! Most of them contain MSG! You can also make your MSG-free nori easily as well. Simply cook on a frying pan and brush with roasted sesame oil and sprinkle sea salt.
