STAR NUTRIENT IODINE
Why the health halo? Wellness bloggers can often make seaweed sound like the best thing since sliced bread, from improving your gut health through to giving a boost to your immunity and metabolism.
Is the hype justified? No. One sheet of nori seaweed (the type you use to wrap sushi) has around 7 per cent of your daily iodine. So you’d have to eat a lot of sushi rolls if you tried to meet your daily target with nori!
WINNER: EGGS A hard-boiled egg has more iodine than a sheet of seaweed, and is a source of satisfying protein. Enjoy eggs whole, as a snack or cut in half, and sprinkle with chilli fl akes or dukkah.
