Seaweed Health Benefits

Iodine is an essential trace element that is lacking in many diets, and is particularly important during pregnancy.  In the diet, iodine contributes to:

o Normal development in children
o High energy yielding metabolism
o Normal cognitive function
o Normal thyroid function

Research shows specific compounds in seaweed can help manage blood sugar and the feeling of fullness. You may have noticed no salt in this recipe! Seaweed is used to replace salt and enhance flavours.
