Raw nori has a dark, lustrous color and fresh, clean taste. Nori has the highest protein content of any sea vegetable - up to 35%, plus lots of vitamins & minerals. Raw nori is a very special, high quality variety of this most popular Japanese seaweed, perhaps the only vegetable that is actually cultivated in the sea. It is especially nourishing and makes a delicious, handy snack for children, a tasty condiment, a wrapper for rice balls or sushi, or a convenient addition to soups and vegetable dishes.
Known as the wrap around sushi, nori is fun to wrap around anything for finger food. Use raw nori to add rich flavor and bright color to any meal. Cut into thin strips, it adds a savory complement served atop cooked grain cereals or miso soup, or mixed into pressed salads.
It can also be prepared into a side dish, known as Nori Nitsuke, when cooked with water and seasoned with tamari to taste. It makes a tasty, nutritious snack, even right out of the bag.

About Gold Mine
Out of a dream for “right livelihood” and a desire to spread the word about the healing powers of good food, Gold Mine was started in 1985 on a $300 loan. We began as a small family business in a gold mining town in the mountains, but we quickly outgrew our cabin and moved the business to San Diego.
By distributing traditional macrobiotic foods and hard-to-find organic, heirloom quality grains, beans, and seeds, we developed a network of friends and local businesses that were eager to obtain these high quality products.
From the very beginning, we had always offered our own handcrafted organic, raw sauerkraut. But when the raw food movement took off a few years ago, even more people became aware of the health benefits of freshly made, naturally fermented sauerkraut. Now, it’s our #2 bestseller!
