IKEA’s Dogless hotdog with Spirulina dressing

[Global] IKEA’s twist on the classic snack shows that healthy and sustainable food need not be bland.

It’s made with dried and glazed baby carrots, beet and berry ketchup, mustard and turmeric cream, roasted onions, cucumber salad, and a herb salad mix.

But the star of the show  –  and what gives the Dogless Hotdog its eye-catching looks  –  is the bun itself.

That’s because it’s made with Spirulina — the microalgae that contains more beta carotene than carrots, more chlorophyll than wheatgrass, and 50 times more iron than spinach.

Oh, and more protein than a “real” hotdog.

The UN called spirulina “the most ideal food for mankind” — and we’re inclined to agree.

SPACE10 research is rooted in an important principle. Dishes shouldn’t just be healthy or sustainable. They must be delicious, too.

To change people’s minds about food, to inspire them to try new ingredients, we can’t just appeal to the intellect — we have to titillate their taste buds.

Which is why IKEA been working with our chef and food designer to come up with dishes that look good, taste good, and are good for people and the planet.
