Irish moss, aka Chondrus Crispus, and also referred to as sea moss, is a species of red algae. Irish Moss has a history of traditional herbal use throughout Europe and holds a place within Irish folklore. Nowadays, this “superfood” seaweed is consumed for its vitamin and mineral content—it contains 92 out of 102 minerals that the body needs! Irish moss naturally contains carrageenan, a substance widely used for its thickening and stabilizing properties. Sprinkle Irish moss on vegetarian dishes, add it to broths, or boil with milk to create a jelly-like dessert dish. Clean and soak in water overnight to create Raw Sea Moss Gel. Our Raw Golden Irish Sea Moss is sustainably grown and harvested in the Philippines.
