A sparker said to use dulse and/or kelp instead of salt for flavoring. Is it good? It sounds a bit weird to me!

    I use seaweed in my cooking. Sometimes I even gnaw on some Wakami - a weird but satisfying treat. When I cook beans, I put a bit of Kelp in the pot to keep the gasinous of the beans down. I like the taste of seaweeds. Seaweeds taste of the sea. I don't know much about all the nutritional stuff in seaweed. There is sodium. There is iodine. Other than seaweed, I don't know where else naturally occurring iodine can be found. Personally, using seaweed instead of salt is not something I want to do. Seaweed has its own taste. Why not use sea salt? Or that pink Himalayan salt? Hmm....

    Dried kelp chips taste fishy. Which is great crumbled on certain veggie soups. I wouldn't want it to salt everything. Hope you like seafood. If you have to cut your salt intake have you tried other spices? Also, the best way to get rid of sodium is to get rid of processed foods. I personally need to salt my food to keep my blood pressure up. Not fair is it. emoticon

    I haven't tried it but I am sure that like everything else - it is an acquired taste and probably good FOR us but whether it TASTES good or not is debatable and personal.

    Dulce is seaweed. I have heard it is healthy and it would help to flavour foods and give extra nutrients. It is very economical now coming from China but we get it from Canada's east coast. Teri
