Low Calorie Superfood
Like most seaweed foods, Nori is a low-calorie superfood with an abundance of bioavailable nutrients. By weight, nori sheets contain almost 50 percent protein - the highest of any seaweed. The mineral-rich ocean saturates nori with an abundance of amino acids and minerals (including ten times more calcium and iron than dairy products), vitamins, antioxidants and lignans.
The complex array of minerals in the ocean make nori a nutrient-dense solution to the waning mineral levels in land vegetables attributed to poor soil quality. It's a perfect food to add to your diet if you're deficient in any fundamental vitamins or minerals. The antioxidants, fiber and lignans in nori may contribute to healthy cardiovascular performance. A naturally low-calorie food, nori is not low on flavor, making it a terrific snack for anyone watching his or her caloric intake.
Nori is a healthy food, not a miracle drug. These statements herein have not been reviewed by the FDA. Navitas Naturals products are not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease.

Salty, Sweet Umami
Umami is known in Japanese as the “5th taste”, defined as savory and mouth-watering. Nori’s salty-sweet and complex flavor encapsulates the umami essence. Of course, you can use this exceptional quality seaweed for your homemade sushi, but don't stop there! Cut it into thin strips and top off your salads, stir-fries and rice dishes. We also suggest that you use it like a tortilla for fresh veggies and fillings or eat a sheet straight out of the bag for a satisfying snack all by itself.
