Traditionally added to miso soup, dulse can be added to stir fries, omelets, salads and even muffin and scone batter.
Super Good dulse is wild harvested in the North Atlantic, off the Irish coast and packed in South Africa.
Did You Know? An 8g serving of dulse contains more Iron than a 100g portion of sirloin steak!
Calories and Fat
A 1/3 cup serving of Dulse has 18 calories. This is a heart-healthy food as it has no saturated fat and no cholesterol. With 2 g of fiber, this food is surprisingly filling. The Harvard School of Public Health recommends that you consume 14 g of fiber for every 1,000 calories. The fiber-to-calories ratio of Dulse far exceeds this recommendation, allowing you to eat other low fiber foods like yogurt and cheese.
There are 2 g of protein in a 1/3 cup serving of dulse, which satisfies 4 percent of the daily value, based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Although this may not be a substantial amount of protein, it is surprising to find this much protein in such a low-calorie food, which suggests that Dulse is a nutrient-dense food.
Dulse has 122 mg of sodium in a 1/3 cup serving. This is approximately 8 percent of the 1,500 mg limit suggested by the Harvard School of Public Health and the American Heart Association. Given that Dulse is usually used as a flavoring, often with other salty foods such as miso, you should consider whether you can incorporate this much sodium in your diet.
Vitamins and Minerals
For such a low calorie food, Dulse is surprisingly nutritious. Rich in B vitamins, it supplies 10 percent of the daily value for riboflavin and niacin, 42 percent for B-6 and 23 percent for B-12. While it has no vitamin C and provides only 2 percent of the daily value for calcium, zinc and vitamin A, one 1/3-cup serving provides 19 percent of the daily value for iron and 9 percent for chromium. Vegetarian foods that supply this much iron are very rare. Vegetarians, vegans and those with anemia should consider eating dulse regularly.
