NOTE: Ultimate Superfoods / Ojio have stopped these raw Nori sheets. We have sourced an alternative raw Nori sheet from Earth Circle Organics.
Nori sheets are made from a sea vegetable which is pressed into sheets, and traditionally used for making sushi.
Nori, along with other seaweeds, has been a dietary staple of Asian and Pacific Island cultures for thousands of years. This historic relationship has lead to a greater understanding of the value and benefit of seaweed. The extraction of Nori’s individual components and compounds are used in numerous products. For the most complete nutritional benefit however, raw sheets of dried Nori are relatively unmatched.
Raw Nori is 50% protein by weight and full of vitamins and minerals. Ounce for ounce, it contains nearly 10 times the Potassium of a raw banana and nearly five times the vitamin C of an equivalent serving of raw oranges. Raw Nori sheets also contain more Vitamin A than broccoli or apricots as well as numerous essential trace minerals.
Our Nori sheets are grown in closed tanks to ensure that they are not contaminated. Once they are harvested, they undergo a proprietary three stage drying process that ensures the product is shelf stable and completely raw. Consumers can see the difference in Raw Nori just by inspecting its signature dark purple color. Though they are certified organic by the certifying agency in China, this certification is not recognized by the USDA.
Nori is most commonly known for its use in sushi, but it can also be used to make a nutrient dense wrap for almost any food. Crumbled Nori adds a salty crunch to salads and soups while thin slices of Nori are also great as an edible garnish for any meal.
NOTE: the Clearspring nori isn't raw, it's hot air dried at 80 degrees C and then roasted for about 7 seconds at 230 degrees. Real Raw Nori is dark purple, toasted or steamed Nori is green. There is a clear nutritive and taste difference. Remember, Real Raw Nori is always dark purple. Light green nori sheets have been toasted, so are never raw.
Use Nori to make raw veggie "mock" sushi or veggie rolls - or invent your own filling for this low-fat, nutrient-dense food wrap. It can as well be crumbled to season salads or other delights. These Ultimate Raw Nori sheets are a raw food store cupboard staple. Great for a quick snack, and a great way to use up leftovers. Simply assemble your chosen ingredients in a strip across the middle of the sheet, roll up, and seal by wetting the outside edge and pressing it down firmly. Eat as it is, like a baguette, or cut into bite-sized pieces and serve as a hors d'oeuvre. Nori sheets are a great travel food, as they pack easily into any case or bag. They also make a perfect packed lunch.
There are lots of nori recipes in Kate's books, and you can see Kate demonstrating nori rolls in the video below. Here's Kate's blog post on Nori Nibbles. Try Sesamayo in a nori sheet with a heap of alfalfa!

The company began in the rich valleys of Southern California in 2003; the epicenter of the raw food/Superfood movement. First known under the name Ultimate Rawfoods, we began by developing the world’s most decadent Raw Vegan Chocolate Bar. With our high priorities on quality, source, and purity, we soon discovered that existing sources for raw materials at that time fell extremely short of our standards. Ultimate Superfoods was born from this humble beginning as the best option to directly source top-tier quality products from qualifying farms.
