Emerald Cove Sushi Nori, Pacific, Organic
Premium quality, toasted dried seaweed (pyropia yezoensis). USDA organic. Non GMO Project verified. nongmoproject.org. Gluten free naturally. Resealable bag. Of the scores of kinds of seaweeds consumed around the world, nori is the overwhelming favorite. Although originally gathered wild, nori has been cultivated in Japan since the 1700's, and today more than 300,000 tons of fresh nori are harvested annually from farms in coastal Japan, Korea, and North China. Nets of woven rope are suspended below the surface of the ocean in quiet bays, and, during the cold months of winter, the nori slowly grows to cover the entire net. From December to February, the nori is hand-harvested, washed, and placed in frames to dry into paper-like sheets. This low-temperature, slow drying is essential to retain the nutrients. Emerald Cove Organic Pacific Sushi Nori is the highest grade available in the North American natural food industry. The fine texture and pliable sheets produce exceptionally smooth and delicious rolls of nori-maki sushi. Each sheet is pre-toasted to a beautiful, brilliant golden-green.
