Frequent questions from customers
Question: How do I best store the Dulse Flakes?
Answer: The bag is resealable. The dulse flakes are cool and dry to store. Please do not store in the refrigerator.
Question: My dulse flakes sometimes have a white layer on the surface. What is this?
Answer: Algae decay with the time salt, other minerals and protein in crystal form, which they have taken up in the sea. This is noticeable as a whitish covering on the leaves and is a natural process. For matured cheese or ham, there is the same effect. Sometimes this is accidentally held for mold. However, dried algae is usually not mold-prone, except the product is wet due to false storage. The salt layer can be wiped with a damp cloth before preparation.
Question: Is your Dulse regularly checked for pollutants?
Answer: Our suppliers examine each harvested batch on iodine, heavy metals, toxins and microorganisms. We too let analysis perform. Overall, we use stricter limits than specified by the EU directives. We strictly hold these limit values.
Question: How much iodine do your Dulse Flakes contain?
Answer: Dulse algae are a natural product. At Dulse algae from the Atlantic, where ours is from, the content of about 100 μg per gram fluctuates in the area of about 100 μg. With a portion size of 2 g, this corresponds to a daily intake of 200 μg iodine. These are about 133% of nutrient reference values (NRV) for the daily intake according to food regulation. We recommend to consume Dulse Flakes a maximum of 4-5x per week.
Question: Do the flakes soften in water?
Answer: No. When the flakes are placed in the water, they are merely softer. As a result, you can e.g. puree in a smoothie. When soaking, they multiply their weight about a factor of 5.
