Our organic Irish moss powder can be encapsulated, added to smoothies, or used in seaweed-based broths and soups.
Irish moss is a tough and stringy red, yellow, or purple seaweed growing up to 6 inches (250 mm) high on rocks in tidal pools along the northern Atlantic. Tide pools are an isolated pocket of seawater in the ocean’s intertidal zone. It is harvested to make carrageenan, a thickening agent for jellies, puddings, and soups, and is a traditional herbal remedy in Ireland.
