    Bacon! I'm in.

    But... if this is a lab based/developed strain of seaweed what's going to happen when it's gets out in the environment? Yet another non-native, introduced exotic to "F" everything up where it's not native?

    Dulse naturally grows on rocks, mollusks and other seaweed in northern waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This strain is called C3.

    Is there not some point at which what you are eating is so healthy that you will explode? Yeah, I'm a worrier...

    Yeah, but for it to taste like bacon you still have to fry it. C-A-L-O-R-I-E-S.

    I love seaweed. I love the toasted seaweed sheets that are lightly salted. Better than potato chips and healthier.

    The article appears to suggest that is indeed native. And not engineered. They're just looking at producing it in greater quantities.

    Wonder if they are frying it in bacon grease?

    If it can be fried it can also be baked. It's just one of those things you have to try for yourself to see if it is tasty and useful.
