From the GimMe Seaweed website:

Seaweed

Nature makes it incredibly nutritious, we make it incredibly delicious.

We love seaweed! It not only tastes great, it’s also loaded with nutritional value. In fact, seaweed has the highest density of vitamins and minerals of any vegetable on the planet. Yep. Seaweed is a vegetable. Some people even call it sea lettuce. Kids and adults in Asian cultures have been eating their sea vegetables for centuries, enjoying it’s taste, texture, and many health benefits.

What makes the taste of roasted seaweed so amazingly good? Umami, it’s a savory flavor so mouthwatering and unique that it doesn’t fit into the four basic taste groups. You might know umami from eating nori, the kind of seaweed used as a wrap for sushi. Now umami is so popular it’s considered to be the fifth basic taste, right up there with the four other biggies your tongue knows and loves.

From the Hodo Soy website:
