Nori

Nori (海苔) is the Japanese name for edible seaweed (a "sea vegetable") species of the red algae genus Pyropia, including P. yezoensis and P. tenera. It has a strong and distinctive flavor. It is used chiefly in Japanese cuisine as an ingredient to wrap rolls of sushi or onigiri, in which case the term refers to the dried sheets. The finished dried sheets are made by a shredding and rack-drying process that resembles papermaking. They are sold in packs in grocery stores for culinary purposes. Since nori sheets easily absorb water from the air and degrade, a desiccant is needed when storing nori for any significant time. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics established in 2016 that nori is not an adequate source of vitamin B12. Nori also contains toxic metals (arsenic and cadmium) and amphipod allergens, so its daily consumption in large quantities is discouraged.
