In an effort to get more iodine in my diet to help with my thyroid health as well as to enjoy a savory snack, I’ve been eating these Kirkland Brand seaweed packets at a rate of about 2 a day.
I never really thought too much about what went into these since I really enjoyed how it tasted… I just figured it was pretty straight forward sea weed… and salt. What else could there possibly be.
I never bothered to look at the ingredient list until a family member pointed it out to me.
Turns out there is a good amount of corn oil and grape seed oil, both of which are no-nos, if I’m trying to maintain a good diet.
I only have a few packets left that I think I’ll just finish (after all.. they do taste good!), but I won’t buy these in the future.
Its ok, because I’ve just discovered how much I like salted macadamia nuts, and as long as I continue to divy them up into to-go packets (so I don’t over eat the), I have a good source of fats to snack on.
