Scientists at Oregon State University in the US have found a red seaweed, which tastes like bacon when it is cooked.
The red seaweed grows very quickly and is full of protein, in addition it includes both minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, reports Oregon State University in a statement.
Researcher Chris Langdon and his researching team have cultivated the red seaweed for over 15 years. Now the bacon-weed has taken off on the Internet, and major sites like Time and CBC have written about it.
The research team is now working with Oregon University's Food Innovation Center to find out how the bacon-tasting seaweed can be used in food, according to Time.
The red seaweed is - naturally - reddish in color, and looks like a light transparent salad, writes CBC.
Now we just have to wait and see if pork bacon gets a competitor from the sea over the next few years.
