Dulse Whole Leaf 2 oz.
The high protein and mineral content of dulse adds umami flavor to any dish, but we find it goes especially well with starches and sharp cheeses – However, Dulse tastes great raw, and many customers eat it right out of the bag!
Can be marinated, blanched or steamed for use in salads, or quick roasted and enjoyed as “chips.” You can also enjoy cooked into a soup or stir-fry.
High in iron, vitamin A, and potassium!
Also a rich source of protein, calcium, iron, iodine, magnesium, zinc, and dietary fiber!
It doesn’t need to be cooked! Dulse tastes great raw!
Dried at mild temperatures – This keeps the enzymes active and the nutrition stable!
Certified Organic Seaweed
In 1992, Maine Coast Sea Vegetables become the first US seaweed company to receive Organic Certification. Compared to land plants, we have little control over the growing conditions of wild marine vegetables – but we do have choices about how, when, where, and how much we harvest, as well as how the seaweeds are transported, dried, stored and packaged. In addition MCSV is one of the only companies that independently chooses to do third party lab tests for possible contaminants (see below for more info).
The NOP (National Organic Program) Standards help to ensure sustainability. These standards give clear and uniform direction to all responsible parties for harvesting and handling these precious vegetables on their way to your table.
OCIA Cert: NOP-03215, 2018
Harvested From the North Atlantic
Most of our sea vegetables are harvested from the cold waters of the North Atlantic. Harvest grounds are carefully chosen to be in compliance with Organic Certification to ensure the highest standards of quality, purity, and long-term sustainability.
Sustainably Harvested Since 1971
Maine Coast Sea Vegetables was founded in 1971 by Shep and Linnette Erhart in their farmhouse kitchen, inspired by a pot of miso soup that was especially delicious. They realized that the soups’ full, rich flavor came from the wild Alaria they had gathered from the shores of the Schoodic Peninsula, and they soon began sharing their Atlantic Wakame and other wild-harvested sea vegetables with friends and neighbors.
Easy To Use Ingredients
