Clearspring Organic Seaveg Crispies are a deliciously moreish seaweed snack, roasting our organic nori for just a few seconds adds a distinct crispiness to that unique umami flavour of the sea. A light dusting of sea salt and turmeric then turns this popular sea vegetable into a convenient and tasty on-the-go snack for your family. Equally great for garnishing your ramen bowls, with rice, or simply sprinkling over salads.
To grow our sustainable and organic seaweed, nori spores are carefully planted onto nets made of woven rope and suspended into calm, shallow bays. The height of each net is carefully fixed so that it remains above the water level during low tide, giving the growing nori maximum sunlight, and below the water level so that the plants receive a regular washing, at high tide.
The delicate nori plants will grow until they cover the entire net. When they are ready to be harvested, they are brought ashore, where they are thoroughly cleaned.
The nori is then ready to be pressed into a thin sheet, which is cut into smaller portions – just like you would expect to see when you buy a packet of nori to make sushi at home. The nori sheets are finally seasoned with sunflower oil and unrefined sea salt, before being toasted and cut into a delicious bit-sized crispy snack.
We at Clearspring have been hard at work with our producer to improve the packaging of your snacks. As a start, we have listened to your feedback and finally managed to remove the plastic tray from the individual packs. We have saved 4.5M trays which is equivalent to 17.5 tonnes of plastic. As an extra step, this multipack outer bag has also changed to a recyclable paper-based material.
*Based on annual sales
We use only organic certified nori for our Seaveg Crispies™, which are grown in the luscious clear water off the coast of Korea. This is important to us because you can be assured that the natural environment within those waters is protected.

I have always believed in Clearspring as an avid fan of Macrobiotic food over 20 years. I have never felt I need to check the list of ingredients on any of their products.
I think that they are wrong to sell a product that is 50% sunflower oil in the seaweed.
Their Toasted Nori is 91% seaweed with no oil in it. I thought this product was the same but with a hint of tumeric.
I cant believe Clearspiring has changed in this way. Japan sells a lot of junk food I hope Clearspring doesnt go in this direction.

Hi Michelle, thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
All of our Japanese and Atlantic sea vegetables are in raw, dried form and this particular product is the only exception, as it's a popular ready-to-eat snack from Korea.
Something to consider here is the weight of this product. At only 4g, it is a fraction of the weight of a bag of crisps for example, and therefore a fraction of the amount of oil too..
As always though, everything in moderation.
Please rest assured, we have not lost our values and have no intention of selling junk food.
All feedback is welcome though, so thank you.
I was given a packet of seaweed and turmeric at the allergy show and was very impressed with them . I guess there are other flavours and I've ordered a lot more of them ! Delicious 😋
These seaveg crispies are the best, I have tried many different brands including ones from Korea. These are light on oil, with a decent amount of salt but not too much, and lovely and crisp. A great way to get seaweed into your body. My whole family loves them, we are addicted. BUT... Clearspring really needs to find a better way to package them so that the plastic is reduced - so I have deducted a star.
I always have these at home for. A healthy snack
I really enjoy these, very tasty and I try to have plenty of turmeric so these are ideal although it is only a mild flavour.
