When it comes to superfoods, seaweed is one to watch. It’s not exactly new to the food scene (Asian cultures have enjoyed seaweed on a regular basis for centuries) but now that it has gone mainstream, seaweed is even easier to access. Seaweed is low in calories and boasts fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and iron. You can snack on seaweed on its own (keep reading for our favorite ways to do it!) or use to add some briny depth of flavor to soups and stews. Seaweed is also an ideal ingredient for a range of diets like Whole30®, ketogenic, paleo, dairy-free, and gluten-free.
The History of SeaSnax
Jin Jun’s kids eat grew up eating seaweed like candy, which gave her the idea to package it up for others to enjoy. With a master’s degree in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and a personal interest in nutrition, Jun was eager to make it easy for other families to enjoy healthy snacks at home. The seaweed is sourced from Korea, and the brand has committed to donating 10 percent of its annual net profit to organizations that help make the world a better place.
SeaSnax Company Mission
With a motto like “Strangely Addictive!” this is one brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously. SeaSnax recognizes that seaweed may seem odd to some palates, but it also deeply believes it’ll make a seaweed believer out of anyone who tries it. As a small family business, the team is tight-knit and always focused on sourcing the highest quality ingredients.
Benefits of SeaSnax
This is one brand that prides itself on using completely ordinary ingredients. The seaweed used in the SeaSnax line is called porphyra, a red algae also known as nori. It’s sustainably harvested, roasted, and packaged in Korea, and is never combined with preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors. On the nutrition front, look at a package of the Roasted Seaweed Classic option, and you’ll enjoy some vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. Bonus: the entire bag clocks in at only 15 calories!
