Bacon-Flavored Seaweed Is the Holy Grail of Health Food

Meet the world's new favorite superfood.


Dulse is a seaweed that has "twice the nutritional value of kale and tastes just like bacon," according to scientists, making it the Holy Grail of health food. Researchers at Oregon State University have been pushing to give dulse — which has been floating around the health food world for a while — a "marketing makeover." Basically, scientists are giving you permission to make everything taste like bacon. Best of all it's technically vegan, which is great news for those who gave up meat but still miss the smoky, porky flavors of bacon.
