Power Superfoods Dulce flakes - an alternative to salt



A new addition to my pantry is Power Superfoods Certified Organics Dulse Flakes.
I now use this in place of salt and seasoning in many of my meals. I'm trying to eat as raw and clean as possible.

Facts:

Rare and unique, our premium red Dulse (Palmaria palmata) seaweed is hand-harvested from the icy cold waters of Dark Harbour in the Canadian Maritimes, then sun-or-shed-dried. With it's velvety texture, Dulse Leaf or Flakes are munchable minerals wrapped in fabulous flavour !

"Hi Power Super Foods. I would just like to say a BIG THANKS to you all for bringing such awesome products to the public. I would also like to say I bought the SEA POWER Dulse Flakes and saw that you donate a percentage to Sea Shepherd. It is AWESOME! I am a crew member on Board the Bob Barker and was stunned when I got back from shopping and read that you donated a percentage to SSCS and showed all the crew -- so big smiles everywhere knowing that other people care about the marine eco system too. Will be recommending to everyone I know. Thanks heaps." M.M.

Nutritional Benefits: 
Dulse seaweed is a natural treasure chest of goodness, with Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E, and minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chromium, iodine and zinc and trace elements.

Suggested Uses:
Enjoy Dulse Leaf straight out of the bag, or sprinkle Leaf or Flakes in soups, stocks, stews, miso, stirfrys or savoury dishes. Alternatively, use to ‘salt' pasta or potato boiling water.
