Although the use of dulse as food is still relatively new to Americans, it is very common in Northern Europe, especially in Iceland, Norway and Ireland. In terms of nutrition, dulse is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, iodine, manganese, copper, chromium, zinc, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C and E.
