Power Super Foods - Dulse Flakes
Power Super Foods raw organic dulse is a nutrient dense red seaweed that grows in remote, intertidal zones. This immaculate environment ensures this mineral rich sea vegetable comes to you in its most natural form. Wild harvested from the cold pristine waters of the North Atlantic the dulse is then air dried at low temperatures and ground into flakes. Drying leaves behind a white layer of naturally occurring sea salt adding depth of flavour to this wild sea vegetable.
Good for you, good for the planet
Power Super Foods dulse is sustainably hand selected from the wild by certified organic, small-scale harvesters, then air dried at low temperatures. These practices ensure minimal environmental impact and promote the sustainable supply of quality sea vegetables. Dulse provides a delicious source of vitamins and minerals including iodine, iron and potassium. Iodine is essential for the production of normal thyroid hormones and energy metabolism and iron is necessary for normal immune system function and oxygen transport throughout the body. Potassium is necessary to support nerve and muscle function and electrolyte balance.
Ways to enjoy

Origins of dulse
Enjoyed in many coastal communities for centuries as nourishing food and medicine, dulse was a favoured snack food in Ireland, Scotland and Iceland and even sustained monks and Celtic Vikings. Used as medicine and celebrated in ancient folklore, much of seaweed's popularity can still be attributed to its impressive nutritional profile.
