Our Purple Dulse is a savory, umami, colorful seaweed that is sustainably wild-harvested from the pristine waters of the North Atlantic Ocean along the rocky coasts of the Gulf of Maine between the US and Canada. It's is perfect for soups, stews, stir-fries, sauces, salads and any other dish that needs an extra oomph. Use in cooking and garnishing for an irresistible nutty flavor or as an alternative to salt. It makes a great accompaniment to starches and sharp cheeses.
This dulse is solar-dried to preserved its nutrients, which include protein, dietary fiber, vitamin A (beta-carotene), iron, potassium, magnesium, chlorophyll, trace ocean minerals and B vitamins. It's also an excellent source of iodine!

- umami flavor
- taste enhancement
- lobster bisque
- Game changer
Tasty purple leaves.
If a dish needs a little bit of the sea in it, here is a subtle addition. I am loving this on potatoes and eggs where it does not get overwhelmed. I am betting it is good to sprinkle over tofu dishes, and will be adding to light broths.
Game changer for lobster bisque
I’ve made lobster bisque before, but this time added some purple dulse and it was a game changer. Added a great umami flavor that was needed. Family said it was the best bisque made in this house! Will be using it again!
A game changer!
What a surprise, and LOVING the umami-type of taste enhancement.
Umami rich! Who needs salt?
I was not familiar with dulse until this bottle arrived. It's precisely as described, giving that umami flavor and is a great alterntive for salt!
I’ve used it often. In soups, marinades, roasted vegetables and popcorn. I will be ordering more right away.
