Some laver is hard and transparent, and it is not easy to tear apart after making dry laver, and it is not easy to chew when eating.

Laver is a kind of food with high gelatin content. After drying, the gelatin is shaped and needs to be soaked in high-temperature water to restore the original state. Therefore, many people are soaking laver when the water temperature is too low or the time of soaking is too short, the gelatin is not soaked through, and it will not be easy to chew and tear when eating.
