This news is bacon my day.
In news that I’m fairly sure is currently being trumpeted as “game-changing” and “nobel-prize winning” by the science community, a new strain of seaweed that is delicious, nutritious, and has a “strong bacon flavour” has been created.
According to Oregen State University, Scientists at Hatfield Marine Science Center have “created and patented a new strain of dulse (seaweed) – one (they’ve) been growing for the past 15 years.”
The pioneer behind the revolutionary invention, Chris Langdon said that the bacon tasting seaweed has many minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, as well as “16 percent protein in dry weight”. I don’t know what this means, but I do know that these healthy sounding words have me sold.
