Irish Moss was once the primary source of Carrageenan (also called carrageen). Carrageenan is a vegetarian alternative to gelatin; and it’s widely used as a colloidal thickening agent in many foods and cosmetics. Irish Moss powder can be used in the home kitchen to thicken puddings, custards or soups. The rise of craft brewing has also brought back the historic use of Irish Moss as a beer clarifier, as it naturally accelerates protein coagulation; essentially eliminating the need for post-boil filtration.
Irish Moss and carrageenan have a long history of medicinal use for respiratory and digestive ailments. Like other seaweed-derived gels, carrageenan is soothing and nourishing to the skin, making it a valued ingredient for homemade beauty and skin care products. Like most sea vegetables, Irish Moss is rich in minerals, vitamins, fiber, and bioactive compounds.
