Our nori is harvested by hand off the Sonoma Coast of California during the early mornings of May and June when low tides expose the rocky shore edge. Sonoma Coast sea vegetables rate in the top 5 percent of the world's richest and most pristine seaweeds. Harvested by Heidi of Strong Arm Farm in Healdsburg, she triple-rinses it and dries it on screens in the sun. And according to Kelp Watch, NO radioactive isotopes have been found in coastal-California sea vegetables.
Nori is highest in protein (30 percent by weight), iron, B6 and B12 content among the seaweeds. It alkalinizes the blood, is known as a lymphatic cleanser and supports thyroid health with bioavailable iodine, which helps regulate metabolism, weight and mood.
Our powder (actually, fine flakes) adds powerful nutrients to eggs, rice, noodles -- any food enhanced by its distinctive "umami" flavor. Because it's completely natural, it's a valued alternative to oily MSG-laden sushi sheets.
One of our favorite ways to use it is sprinkled over eggs that braise for a few minutes in our morning bone broth, along with chopped, fresh vegetables and a couple of other vegetable powders. We also like it folded into rice as a base for baked salmon.
Ingredients: Wild-harvested nori. Nothing else.
