There’s a huge amount of new discoveries coming from the science world these days, but this might be one of our favorites!

Researchers have found a strain of seaweed that has DOUBLE the nutritional value of kale (and you know we rave about kale!) …AND it tastes like BACON when fried!

I’m not even pulling your leg.

Is it even possible for all of us health-pursuing peeps to fathom a new superfood that is bacon-flavored and packed with nutrients?

It might be even better news for our readers who have long believed that ‘healthy’ is just another way of saying ‘flavorless’, ‘green’ and ‘unsatisfying’.

Dulce, what is being called a ‘miracle seaweed’, is a strain of red marine algae that grows in the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines. It is fast-growing and looks a lot like a head of red see-through lettuce.

The scientific community has actually known about dulce for years. It’s packed with protein, antioxidants and vitamins and is sold most commonly as a nutritional supplement or dry cooking ingredient in Europe. Not many people in the U.S. have used it fresh.

Lucky for us, scientists at Oregon State University have been toying around with this funky seaweed for the past few years and have created a new strain that can be farmed and served in multiple ways on traditional american tables.

How was this new strain created?   

Dr. Chris Langdon, leading researcher for dulce at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, actually began studying dulce with the intent of finding a new superfood for aquatic mollusks to grow faster.

But during the researching process, what was originally going to be a superfood for abalone became what could potentially be a new human superfood and an entirely new industry for Oregon.

According to Dr. Langdon, their newly patented strain is indeed fast-growing and they are currently growing 20-30 pounds every week. That amount could easily be tripled once things get off the ground.

Will dulce be the new bacon? Is this to be a new revolution for those who don’t (or can’t) eat meat like vegetarians and vegans? If ducle is able to be grown and harvested for a good price will it help to solve a growing hunger problem in the U.S. and around the world?

Although the flavor of dulce has yet to be independently verified, once it is and if it tastes as good as these researchers are saying it does, the possibilities for this bacon-wanna-be seaweed are endless.

Stay tuned!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
