Science Has Just Created A Veg That Tastes Like Bacon

Kale is currently the benchmark for anything nutritious. Anyone who says they love the taste however, can confidently be branded a liar.

But there’s no need to worry, science has come to your dietary rescue and created a seaweed that is twice as good for you as kale and tastes like bacon.

Researchers from Oregon State University have found that when you fry their new strain dulse, a red marine algae that looks like red lettuce it taste like every man’s favourite food. Though dulse is already used as in ingredient generally, this particular strain isn’t available for consumption yet.

Should the researchers fancy a change of career, it’s safe to say they’re sitting on a goldmine.

While we’d never turn down a bacon sarnie, there are a few things that the taste may not be so compatible with. So in the spirit of frankenscience, here are five things that taste like bacon but really shouldn’t.
