Raw Nori is 50% protein by weight and full of vitamins and minerals. Ounce for ounce, it contains nearly 10 times the Potassium of a raw banana and nearly five times the vitamin C of an equivalent serving of raw oranges. Raw Nori sheets also contain more Vitamin A than broccoli or apricots as well as numerous essential trace minerals. These Nori sheets are grown in closed tanks to ensure that they are not contaminated. Once they are harvested, they undergo a proprietary three stage drying process that ensures the product is shelf stable and completely raw. Consumers can see the difference in Raw Nori just by inspecting its signature dark purple colour.
