So you know seaweed was named one the hottest superfood trends of 2016 and is back for 2017.
And you’re aware of its incredible health benefits; that it’s rich in thyroid-friendly iodine and packed with fibre and protein to aid weight loss.
You’ve heard seaweed has an amazing taste profile, too. Rich in umami, ‘the fifth taste’, it’s a natural alternative to salt when you want to add depth of flavour to dishes.
