Atlantic dulse seaweed benefits have long been recognised in coastal communities. Dulse has been consumed on Ireland’s west coast for centuries. My granddad lived all of his life on the Aran Islands and had eaten wild harvested dulse, all of the time. I have fond memories of how he always had a bunch of dried dulse wholeleaf packed into a brown paper bag, he carried a bag of seaweed with him everywhere he went. It is still normal practice today on the islands, my mom eats seaweed several times a week.
Growing up on the Aran Island’s the inhabitants always consumed dulse, it was used as a functional food ingredient. The small group of islands are located 10 nautical miles from Ireland’s west coast and stretch across the entrance to Galway Bay (Yes, the same place that Ed Sheeran sang the song “Galway Girl”). The islands take on the full force of the Atlantic ocean. There are 3000 miles of open ocean between north America and the location that our Atlantic Dulse Seaweed is harvested from. Growing up on the island, the food staples were mainly fish, shellfish, meat and land grown vegetables. All of the island agricultural farming fields were also cultivated and fertilised with of course, seaweed!

Atlantic dulse helps to detoxify and remove heavy metals
Atlantic Dulse, once consumed it is known to go into the deep parts of our body and binds to heavy metals that help to cleanse our system.

Dulse and Iodine
The word is spreading about seaweed and the content of minerals such as iodine that it can absorb. The reality is that you can sample two different seaweed species and, you will more than likely get two different results. For example, Kombu/Sugar Kelp contains very high amounts of Iodine whereas the green seaweeds such as ‘sea lettuce’ contains very little amounts of iodine. Seaweeds are low in calories and rich sources of nutrients ranging from minerals, dietary, vitamins and long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids or PUFA’s, all beneficial to health.
Dulse Flakes and Dulse Powder can be considered to contain high amounts of iodine when compared to other red seaweeds such as Irish Moss, with both species coming from the same family of red seaweeds.
In fact, consuming Dulse daily can provide enough iodine to ensure that we are not iodine deficient and can help prevent goitre. There are many therapeutic used for Atlantic Dulse. It is a superfood with Vitamins, minerals, omegas, B12, iron and the list goes on! This is why this sea vegetable is punching above its weight, I don’t know many such land vegetables that provide B12.
Why the harvesting location of dulse matters
The dulse that we supply originated from one of the most pristine and monitored marine ecosystems in the world. The harvesting locations of Connemara and the Aran Islands are routinely tested by the EPA and Marine Universities. Ireland’s natural marine environments and fishing grounds are world renowned and largely protected.
This is important to ensure that the marine ecosystem’s are monitored, tracked and reported on. Seaweed has always been harvested on Ireland’s westcoast. The waters are graded as high while also being classified as unpolluted. Evidently, there has never been any industrial economies in Ireland-s west. The harvesting locations are mainly uninhabited islands and coral beaches surrounding the areas, it is cut off from the rest of Ireland. The coast line is in pristine condition.
