New Seaweed Tastes Just Like Bacon When Fried
Geege Schuman stashed this in Nutrition
Dulse (Palmaria sp.) grows in the wild along the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. It is harvested and usually sold for up to $90 a pound in dried form as a cooking ingredient or nutritional supplement. But researcher Chris Langdon and colleagues at OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center have created and patented a new strain of dulse – one he has been growing for the past 15 years.
This strain, which looks like translucent red lettuce, is an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants – and it contains up to 16 percent protein in dry weight, Langdon said.
Pros: Lots of protein, low fat, low environmental impact.
Cons: I know bacon. Bacon is a friend of mine. This is no bacon.
Also, that price is a problem.
