London-based healthy snacks company Abakus Foods introduces Seaweed Crisps
The seaweed used to make the crisps are harvested from the deep blue seas of South Korea and coated with a thin layer of crunchy tapioca to create a crunchy and healthy snack.
Seaweed is known for its natural vitamin and mineral content, as well as being a great source of iodine, which helps support cognitive function and functioning of the nervous system. Tapioca, extracted from the roots of the cassava plant, is a “resistant starch” which feeds the friendly gut bacteria to the gut, thereby reducing inflammation and increasing fullness.
These guilt-free snacks can be eaten as an afternoon pick-me-up, in lunch boxes, to take on travels or even enjoyed sprinkled on salads and soups to add flavour.
Abakus Foods’ Founder and Director, Helen Wang commented: “We created this range out of our love for the nutritious seaweed. 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. And we are honoured to be collaborating with “1% For The Planet Program” to give back to the planet and donate 1% of sales to environmental causes. We are super excited to be finally sharing them with you”.
Gluten-free, vegan, and containing approximately 100 calories per bag, these crispy seaweed snacks come in three flavours: Lightly Salted, Salt & Vinegar, and Cheese Flavour, RRP of £1.29 per bag.
