Hands holding red Dulse seaweed.

Dulse is a nutrient-dense, bright red marine algae, which has been well documented due to the bacon-like flavor of one specific variety when fried. Oregon State University has patented this particular strain, which has a high content of protein (20%), vitamins, and minerals. Dulse also grows very quickly in recirculating aquaculture tanks, which means that it could be part of the solution to feeding our rapidly increasing global population.
