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 is made of! 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.
