Nori is a seaweed used mainly in sushi and nori rolls. The Japanese have relied on sea vegetables and fish as a mainstay of their diet for 1500 years. Nori is purchased in flat sheets, dried and roasted. It has a crisp texture and salty flavour. Nori is available as flat, thin, square sheets.

Nori is known as the treasure house of the sea. It contains EPA, a non essential superunsaturated fatty acid, said to be effective in preventing hardening of the arteries, as well as taurine, an amino acid effective in reducing blood pressure, minerals and chlorophyll.
