Wild Atlantic Irish Moss - Nourishing Red Seaweed for Food Thickening and a Healthy Lifestyle
Irish Moss, also referred to as "Sea Moss," is a red seaweed that grows in the North Atlantic intertidal zone. It is a versatile ingredient used in a variety of products, from food and cosmetics to traditional medicines. Irish Moss is commonly used as a thickener in food products, as a clarifier in craft brewing, and is a rich source of minerals, vitamins, fiber, and bioactive compounds.
Our Irish Moss is harvested in the North Atlantic and is available in whole leaf, powder, and coarse/flake forms. The powder can be used in the home kitchen to thicken puddings, custards, or soups, as carrageenan, derived from Irish Moss, is a popular vegetarian alternative to gelatin. Carrageenan is also used in cosmetics as it is known to soothe and nourish the skin. Irish Moss and carrageenan have a long history of medicinal use for respiratory, skin, and digestive ailments, making it a valued ingredient for homemade health and beauty products.
