[Netherlands] Following ‘I sea pasta,’ Seamore has now announced a new product during the official launch of Foodyard Amsterdam. ‘I sea bacon’ is a 100 per cent seaweed version of bacon. This vegetable, a healthy and sustainable alternative, tastes salty, of course, but is also smoky and crunchy after frying for a bit. ‘I sea bacon’ is available from 24 November.
Since its inception, Seamore has been awarded various international prizes for its mission: to discover unique types of seaweed in order to use them to create healthier, sustainable versions of well-known products.
Save my bacon
Willem Sodderland, founder of Seamore: “We heard of a type of seaweed that would be similar to bacon. The moment I threw it in the pan was magical: the purple leaves turned into green, crunchy bacon. I added eggs, and thus created the first meal.” I sea bacon made quick work of bacon’s bad reputation.
Andre Gerrits, Michelin star chef of restaurant ’t Amsterdammertje, and winner of the Taste of the World award: “I believe in Seamore’s vision. Seaweed is an amazing additional ingredient. The seaweed bacon can be used as a topping in many different ways: from haute cuisine to classics with a twist.”
