SeaSnax Nutritious Seaweed Snacks

Nutritious SeaSnax make eating seaweed convenient and delicious

Seaweed has long been a crucial ingredient in healthful diets, due to its high mineral content.

Here's a new way to enjoy the treasure from the ocean: SeaSnax, a line of all-natural vegan snacks ($2.50 to $4 for singles; $8 for SeaVegi) made with sustainably harvested seaweed, olive oil and a pinch of sea salt.

The company, started by two families who wanted to create a wholesome snack for their children and introduce seaweed to the American masses, offers its savory, satisfyingly crunchy snacks in several formats. Traditional sheets, in flavors like toasty onion, chipotle and classic olive, can be ripped apart and eaten from the bag, or used to make sushi rolls and the like.

SeaSprinkles, the latest and perhaps most convenient incarnation, can also go straight from package to mouth, or be dispersed onto salads, soups and sandwiches.

We're intrigued by SeaVegi (pictured), a dehydrated mixed seaweed salad that, after seven minutes spent soaking in cold water, regains its original shape and texture. It's a starter that's as healthful as it is conversational.

All of SeaSnax's products are Non-GMO Project-verified, and the company gives 10 percent of its annual profits to nonprofit organizations.
