Dulse is red seaweed harvested in the cool waters along the Atlantic coast of Canada and along the shores of Ireland and Norway. Its fronds grow in tidal areas on rocks, shells, and on larger seaweeds. Dulse is a good source of minerals and vitamins compared with other vegetables and it contains all trace elements needed for proper growth, development, and physiology. It is a superior source of phytochemicals the body needs to make thyroid hormones that affect weight and metabolic rate. Dulse is a gentle alternative to Psyllium or Senna for constipation. There are many culinary uses for Dulse. Sun-dried, it can be eaten as is or ground to flakes or powder. It can also be pan fried quickly (garlic butter optional) into tasty chips, baked in the oven covered with cheese then add salsa, or microwaved briefly for a crispy treat. Dulse can also be used in soups, chowders, sandwiches and salads, or added to bread/pizza dough. To get the benefits of Dulse it can also be used in tea, encapsulated, or tinctured.
Irish Moss Seaweed
Irish Moss is a tough, stringy red, yellow, or purple seaweed growing up to 6 inches (250 mm) high on rocks in tidal pools along the northern Atlantic. It is harvested at low tide and dried in the sun to make carrageenans, a thickening agent for jellies, puddings, and soups. As a traditional herbal remedy in Ireland, the powder is appropriate for making herbal combinations for coughs and colds, but the whole plant is best for indigestion and constipation support. Like many of the other seaweeds, Irish Moss is used as a filler, stabilizer and emulsifier in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and a wide array of body care products.
We love seaweed at FloridaHerbHouse.com and SharpWebLabs.com! We munch on it when craving a snack, add it to our culinary dishes at home, and encapsulate it especially for when we’ve hit the afternoon “wall” and need some extra energy. Seaweed comes in quite a few different varieties, all with their own unique properties. We hope that this information has been helpful to you and that you learn to love seaweed as much as we do!
Kelp is also known as Bull Kelp or Giant Kelp. Charles Darwin once described the Kelp beds off the coast of South America as “giant aquatic forests”. Coastal and island populations have used Kelp for food, crafting and medicine for generations. Today however, the popularity of Kelp is growing as both a gourmet food and as a possible super food with respect to health and longevity. Japanese studies have shown that the high Iodine value in Kelp assists with healthy thyroid function, and in the 1990’s scientists isolated constituents in Kelp that have potent anti-tumor properties. The alginates in Kelp (complex polysaccharides have a soothing and cleansing effect on the digestive tract and are known to prevent the absorption of toxic metals like mercury, cadmium, plutonium and cesium. Kelp’s naturally salty flavor comes from potassium rather than sodium, making it a great substitute for salty snacks. Dried Kelp fronds are delicious, and may be used in entrees, soups, salads, encapsulated, or in extract form. In addition, powdered Kelp can be added to smoothies, juices, or teas.
