This week’s health food product review and up this time we have the delicious Cheese Flavour Seaweed Crisps from Abakus Foods.
Abakus Foods are a manufacturer of healthy natural gluten free and vegan snacks such as their seaweed crisps range.
Abakus Foods describe their Cheese flavour Seaweed crisps as: Seaweed with a real crunch!
Our scrumptious seaweed is harvested from the deep blue seas of South Korea, and coated with a thin layer of crispy tapioca, to create the ultimate tantalising snack!
No nasties, just goodness from the sea.
The Seaweed Crisps are high in fiber, 100% vegan and gluten-free.
Only 102 calories per bag.

Evidence-Based Health Review
I stumbled upon the Cheese Seaweed Crisps a couple of months ago during a visit to the local Co-op Supermarket and have been eyeing them up ever since to review here at Evidence-Based Health.
I am a huge proponent of Seaweed and Sea vegetables such as Nori, Dulse and Kelp for supporting health and the important nutrition they provide such as the mineral Iodine and other trace elements.
Taste & Flavour:
The Cheese Seaweed Crisps have an amazing flavour and texture, very much like a real crisp due to the thin outer coating of tapioca.
I am amazed at how “Cheese” like the flavour is also with it coming from nutritional yeast, really nice delicious cheesy taste and of course 100% vegan.
Huge fan of the taste/flavour overall, definitely the best flavoured seaweed crisps I have tried to date.
The Cheese flavour masks the taste of the Nori seaweed well for those who aren’t fans of strong seaweed.
The Seaweed Crisps have several nutritional benefits over traditional potato crisps/chips.
One of the most appealing nutrition benefits of the seaweed crisps is that they are a source of the mineral Iodine. (Containing 33mcg per 18g portion)
Nori seaweed isn’t only a good source of Iodine for supporting thyroid health, research also finds that purple laver(nori) is one of the few plant-based foods to contain the bioactive forms of Vitamin B12 such as methylcobalamin.
The Seaweed crisps are also high in fiber, providing 2.5g per 18g pack.
Overall I really enjoyed the cheese flavour Seaweed crisps from Abakus Foods.
Definitely the best quality seaweed crisps that I have reviewed to date.
A very satisfying, healthy, high fiber, gluten free, plant-based snack.
I recently learned that Abakus Foods also do many other flavours of Seaweed Crisps in their range including Salt & Vinegar and Sweet Chilli, so maybe we will review some of these on the blog in the future too.
Highly recommend for anyone looking for a tasty, savory healthy crisp/seaweed based snack.
