Seaweed salad for carb re-feeds

Answered on August 19, 2014

Has anyone tried seaweed for extra carbs PWO? I found mixed sea vegetables at whole foods (brand is sea tangle if it matters).

The nutrition for one pouch is Calories - 75g Carbohydrate - 92.5g Fiber - 1g Sugar - 0g Protein - 0g

I thought this could be a great PWO snack, due to the high carb count with 0 sugar. Has anyone else tried this? any feelings either way?

Thanks

Which yes, doesn't seem to make much sense, right?

Apologies... the calories are 30 per serving, the pouch is 2.5 servings making it 75 total calories. And per serving, there is 37g carbohydrate, making it 92.5g.

I'm confused by this labeling. Calories - 75g ? g=grams and calories are not measured in grams. Does the label actually list 75 calories per serving? If so, then 92.5g carbohydrate is impossible, since each gram of carbohydrate is figured for food labels as 4 calories, so total calories would be almost 400 per serving - really unlikely for seaweed salad unless it is swimming in oil! Can you check the label again? In my experience, it's common to find really wonky nutrition labels from Asian food companies.

I eat Laminaria digitata a few times a week for iodine (and other minerals) but not really in the quantities that would be necessary for a greater-than-negligible amount of starch.

It's important to be careful about the source of sea vegetables, since they have a tendency toward absorbing contaminants at high rates just as they absorb beneficial minerals. What I buy is certified organic (somehow) and third party purity tested with published results. (seaveg,com - I am not affliliated).
