Yes, there is a loss in nutrients when cooking seaweed. It all depends on how you cook it, just as it is with the land variety.

Some ways to preserve the nutrients while cooking:
* Instead of boiling, try roasting or steaming the seaweed;
* Cook your seaweed while it is still fresh;
* Cook in low or medium heat;
* Take the seaweed off the fire before it overcooks.

Hi Jim! I try to answer all seaweed questions. Some are found here on the site and some are emailed privately. Sorry about the delay.
