Nori Flakes 3-6 mm Organic
Origin of Nori
Nori is the Japanese word for edible seaweed. The seaweed belongs to the genus Porphyra and to the group of red algae. The scientific name Porphyra (Greek for purple) refers to the red-purple to black colour of the seaweed. The seaweed looks like an elastic latex sheet and the leaves can vary in length from 5 to 45 centimetres. Nori is mainly found on the coasts of the United States, Hawaii, Philippines, Europe and abundantly in Japan. They grow on and on rocks in the high tide zone.
Production of Nori Algae Flakes
Nori is harvested from early spring until summer. The nori is carefully picked so that a new growth is possible. Afterwards, they are rinsed and dried in the sun or in ovens. The drying gives the nori a black-purple colour. After this process, the sheets are processed into nori algae flakes. In our shop the Nori Algae flakes are 3-6 millimetres in size.
Use of Nori Algae Flakes
Nori has a sweet, but also umami-like flavour (comparable to that of dried mushrooms or "fruits de mer"). It therefore fits well as an addition to soups, broths and fish dishes. But you can also use the flakes in and over salads.
