Seaweed is a staple ingredient in many Asian countries because of its nutritious qualities as well as its depth of flavor and versatility. As ingredients and food trends are shared around the world, seaweed has been increasingly recognized as a health food as well as for its delicious flavor.
Seaweed comes in several varieties - you may have heard of nori, wakame, kombu or kelp. You’ve probably eaten seaweed at your favorite Japanese, Korean, or Chinese restaurants. It is an important part of traditional soups and sushi recipes, as well as one of the most popular snacks in Asia. In 2019, Tao Kae Noi processed 3.5 million pounds of raw seaweed and distributed our snacks to 37 countries and territories in six continents.
Besides its flavor, seaweed is nutritious. It contains iodine, which supports thyroid function. It is a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamin B12 and Omega-3 fats, and antioxidants like Vitamins A, C, and E. Seaweed is an excellent source of fiber too, making it a good choice for you or your kids.
The main reason we at Tao Kae Noi believe so much in our seaweed is that it’s simply delicious. We love the taste of seaweed and bring a commitment to quality and flavor to each batch. Our goal is to share new and exciting products with the world. We hope you love our seaweed as much as we do!
