Just like the other seaweed, Nori is harvested in a traditional way. Japan and other Asian countries are now cultivating this food source on a larger scale. It is a type of algae that is abundantly found in shallow bays. It is consumed after getting washed and cut. It is then transformed into a fine sheet. With its lighter green color, the sheets can turn into the crispy texture.
Due to its nutty flavor, Nori is one of the prime choices for salad decorations. Not only this, it can be used as a garnishing ingredient in soups and noodles. This food source can be used as a replacement for iodine. There are no fats available in this vegetable; it has low values of carbohydrates and proteins. Nori is a type of edible species that is chiefly used for preparing sushi.
