Healthy Bacon Invented


#1

Well technically it’s an algae that is healthier than kelp, but either way, this is a game changer, boys and girls.


#2

I’m curious how it was done. Was this achieved through old-fashioned breeding, through a special form of cultivation, or through genetic manipulation, or a combination? That article is way too vague to deduce it from, ugh.

I kind of hope it was genetic manipulation, because then I can hold up “healthy bacon algae” as another counterpoint to “ERMAGERD MOSANTO” whenever the topic is brought up by people who doesn’t understand how this stuff works.


#3

Bacon IS healthy if you don’t eat any carbohydrates. Unfortunately I do eat carbohydrates. That’s what makes your body retain it as fat.


#4

Eh, taste is only half the battle though, it would certainly give a slad an extra something but it couldn’t replace bacon when you specifically want to eat bacon as it won’t have the same texture.


#5

isn’t turkey bacon healthy alternative. I tried some before it was good actually…


#6

So…it’s Facon? (or Fakon?) I’ll keep my unhealthy bacon thank you.

#8

But bacon being unhealthy is the best bit.


#9

Still haram.


#10

How is an algae that happens to taste similar to bacon, haram?


#11

Bacon is salty as balls and super high in saturated fat. If you make it past 50 on an all bacon/no carb diet, I envy you.


#12

your not eating meat, your eating science

I think she died right before she hit 106 :frowning:

My exgf shed 30 lbs before i met her, on a mostly bacon diet. She’d cook shit like chicken breasts and asparagus fried with bacon. Had a fantastic ass too.


#15

May have to try Dulse in my cooking adventures. $32 a lb doesn’t sound too appealing though. How much can you really get for a pound…


#16

quite a bit it seems, and you’re not using it in abundance, more for a bacon flavour.


#17

Oh that’s good then. Was thinking it was like most greens where you can buy them by the bunch but have to use up a good amount before having enough to fill the plate. Just gave me an idea for Dulse wrapped bacon /xzhibit.gif

lol yeah, you’re not making a salad with it, but it probably would be amazing in wraps and such.
