Nori is the alga that contains the most proteins and their quality is similar to those of eggs (good balance of essential amino acids).

Porphyra umbilicalis, commonly known as Nori, is a red (but purplish) alga of the Bangiaceae family. It can be up to 60 cm in length and is extremely thin as it consists of only one layer of cells.
It grows on shells and rocks at the top of the foreshore. At low tide, it is found stuck to the rocks, enveloping them in a sort of black film.
Like sea beans, sea lettuce, wakame and dulse, nori is an easy-to-cook alga.
