I had a sheet of Nori seaweed and got glutened, best I can tell. Later, I was reading that many of the companies that process nori seaweed do it on machines shared with wheat products. However, I've been having a heck of a time finding information about what brands might be gluten free and safe.

Anyone know of any?

Wow, there are so many brands out there. I don't even pay attention to the brand. I look at the label. What you want to avoid is what is called "ajitsuke" nori. That means "flavored" in Japanese. Same with teriyaki nori. Just purchase plain nori or one that contains only salt, oil and seaweed.

What else did you have with the nori? Maybe it was one of the other ingredients or maybe the roll was prepared on a surface that was cross-contaminated?
