Why? It is very high in sodium. I don't know much about it except that it is a seaweed.

I would think you could derive the same nutritional benefits from better tasting foods.

sodium is a nutrient...

iodine is the primary reason but kelp is loaded with other nutrients

the sodium is actually key to kelp's nutritional value (it acts as a preservative)... much of the sodium can be removed in preparation apparently

I usually have some dried seaweed in stock. Not nori, but similar. I cut the sheets in smaller pieces and sprinkle some over a green salad. Or mix with some wasabi and sesame seeds in a bowl of white rice (preferably sticky Japanese rice). Also nice to add a bit to a chicken or fish stir fry for a savory/umami taste.

You could also use dried kelp (konbu) and dried tuna flakes (bonito) to make a traditional Japanese broth called dashi. With this dashi you can make miso soup and noodle soup.
