Irish Moss Seaweed is not a moss but a type of red seaweed from the Atlantic Ocean that’s been used for centuries to set puddings, reduce inflammation and strengthen malnourished individuals. It contains high levels (55 %+) of carrageenan, a natural jelly present in red seaweeds. Recently, Irish Moss has been enjoying a revival as an ingredient in raw desserts - the whole re-hydrated plant is pureed to produce a gel used to give texture to a variety of food. The true Irish Moss – Chrondrus crispus – comes from the Atlantic coastline; ours is harvested by hand from the wild in Ireland - where it is abundant - and it is dried naturally to preserve all its goodness. Other plants have similar gelatinous abilities but they are not Irish Moss although they are falsely named the same.
Irish Moss is wild harvested in Ireland & has been tested for contaminants.
