London-based snacks company Abakus Foods has launched a line of Seaweed Crisps, available in three flavours: lightly salted, salt and vinegar, and cheese.
The products feature seaweed harvested from the seas of South Korea and are coated with a thin layer of crunchy tapioca.
Abakus drew attention to the iodine content in seaweed, which “helps support cognitive function and functioning of the nervous system”.
Meanwhile, tapioca, which is extracted from the roots of the cassava plant, is said to be a resistant starch that “feeds the friendly gut bacteria to the gut, thereby reducing inflammation and increasing fullness”.
As well as a standalone snack, the gluten-free and vegan Seaweed Crisps are also suitable for sprinkling on salads and soups to add flavour.
“We created this range out of our love for the nutritious seaweed,” said Helen Wang, Abakus Foods founder and director.
“Feedback has been amazing and people keep coming back for more. Being a natural foods brand, we embrace the wholesome, delicious and nutritious foods that nature provides us with.”
The Seaweed Crisps have a recommended retail price of £1.29 per bag.
