Out to Sea

Could sea vegetables be the missing superfood in your healthy diet?  Although they’re a staple food in countries such as Japan, we still eat relatively little of them in the UK. Sea vegetables – also known as seaweeds – are especially nutrient-dense and are a valuable source of the vital mineral iodine, which is often lacking elsewhere in our diets. SHORE have released their new healthy snacks Seaweed Puffs (£1.25), as moreish as crisps, but at less than 100 calories per 22.5g bag and packed with nutrients, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals.
