View Full Version : Is it ok if I eat?
I've been trying for a month to aquire a taste for seaweed, but can't. A co-worker gave me a couple of packs of Jayone Seasoned & Roasted Seaweed and I love it. I was wondering does it offer anything healthy to a diet?

Well, this is a forum that encourages food to be eaten raw, so roasted seaweed would not be highly supported on this forum, but you are the one to decide if that works for you.
I buy seaweed all the time. It has great benefits. Of course it is raw. I have had roasted nori sheets and raw nori sheets and do not find a deiiference in taste. I have never had any of the other seaweeds cooked, but I do enjoy some of them raw, like laver for instances.

No, it doesn't have much good nutritional value because it has been roasted. If anything has been cooked, it has lost nutrients and carcinocens/mutagens and toxins are actually created during the cooking process.
Raw seaweed is pretty healthy though, I believe.
Of course, you choose what you eat but roasted seaweed is not raw so we don't support it here.
Lay-Lay - Maybe I should try Nori, because Dulse is awful.
Lissomllama - I was hoping you wouldn't use that word (no). ;) I'm glad I can take the truth.
Thanks for you help. :D

free- I use dulse in some recipes, but I am not a big dulse fan. There is a ton of varieties of seaweeds to try so don't count them out, just try them out until you find one you like.
Nori sheets are fun and easy to use. I spread a green sunny patte on them and then slice up carrots, cucumbers, celery, and/or avocados and roll the nori up and slice. YUMMY! Taste sooo good! It was one of my staples for some time.

Raw nori sheets taste just like the ones used in sushi... I don't think roasting them does much for the flavor, they're SO good with a bit of avocado and red bell pepper and lettuce

By the way, how do they make the seaweed salad at the sushi bars? I was out one day and got some because I thought it might have been raw. The sushi guy said it was, but I don't know if he understood what I meant.

If you're asking if it's raw, and part of a raw-foodist's diet, it's not; but you know that.
Otherwise, you're an adult (I assume) and can eat whatever you want.

I love dulse right of the bag as a dry snack. Haven't had it in years because the last time I saw it they wanted to charge me $10 for a mouthful of it. I don't know about any of the other seaweeds. If anyone has a good site to learn about and order from please advise. Also I thought they were full of minerals.
