Finally! Health food that tastes like bacon but healthier than kale

Hang on, is this for real?

Researchers at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Centre recently patented a type of seaweed they believe will take the food world by storm.

Why do they believe that? Because it allegedly tastes just like bacon.

That’s right, we now have a plant that tastes like bacon.

'And the bacon taste is strong too'

This strange-yet-tasty creation is a unique form of a red seaweed known as dulse. Dulse is packed with minerals and protein and looks like red lettuce. For many years dulse has been harvested, dried and sold as a supplement, but has never been marketed as food. Now scientists have turned it into a superfood that tastes like bacon.

“There is a lot of interest in using it fresh; this stuff is absolutely fantastic,” says chief researcher Chris Langdon.

“When you fry it, as I have done, it tastes like bacon, not seaweed. And the bacon taste is strong too.”

Chris and his research team recently obtained funding from Oregon’s department of agriculture to enable them to determine if dulse can be harvested on a large scale.
