Product Description

Irish moss, or carrageen moss (Irish: carraigín, "little rock"), is a species of seaweed which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and the Americas as well as parts in the Pacific. In its fresh condition the plant is soft and cartilaginous, varying in color from a greenish-yellow, through red, to a dark purple or purplish-brown. The principal constituent of Irish moss is a mucilaginous body, made of the polysaccharide Carragenan of which it contains about 55%; the plant also has nearly 10% of protein and about 15% minerals, specifically rich in iodine and sulfur. Because of the abundant cell wall polysaccharides it will form a jelly when boiled or processed with water expanding from 20 to 100 times of its weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this product!!!!!!!!!! February 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is my new favorite raw food ingredient. It has a very neutral flavor and ROCKS when it's used for thickening raw ingredients. So far I have added it to almond milk to make vanilla mousse with strawberries, to mangos to make a pudding and to coconut milk to make whipped topping.

It comes dry and sandy, so I rinsed it WELL and soaked it over night. Then I chopped it and add the moss and the soaking water to the blender. I let blended moss set over night in the frig, it makes about 4-5 times what I started with. The resulting product was VERY firm and dense. I used this mixture in the recipes I created. A little goes a LONG way. One of the things I was concerned about was if citric fruits would cause the gel to break down as citruses soften and tenderize. I've left it mixed with the mango and strawberries up to 48 hours with no issues, nothing has lasted longer than this w/o being eaten :) It has opened a new and exciting way to create goodies! These are the reasons I love it my recipes.

Irish it is one of the super foods as well. Irish moss is now thought to contain 15 of the 18 essential elements that make up the human body. I have not had enough time to tell you if I can see the health benefits listed for Irish Moss, but I already eat sea vegetable, algae, and wheat grass. Based on the difference they have make in my life I believe I will be able to tell a difference with this product as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A healing skin remedy October 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
I used this product as one of the main ingredients for a herbal homemade cream to combat psoriasis. For more than three weeks my sister had been suffering from a unusually persistent itchy psoriasis outbreak that had spread from her neck to her arms. All the herbal remedies that we normally made during her milder skin problems were not responding well enough, so as a last resort we followed a recipe that used a combination of Irish moss, a golden seal infusion, and an equal amount of vegetable glycerin.

Literally after only three applications in a eight hour period we saw the redness on her skin and the red hot itchy bumps on her arms virtually disappear leaving behind only minor traces. Apart from that their was an immediate sense of relief from the uncomfortable itching that ended after only the first application. Even though we had used many different external and internal herbal formulas that normally worked, this time the itchy red bumps had managed to form a red uncomfortable sheet on the entire surface of her lower arms. This wonderful mixture completely took care of all these problems in a matter of days, leaving her skin smooth without a single scar. Even the usual dry psoriasis patches that worsened during these episodes responded beautifully to the mixture, and quickly softened until they too finally disappeared in one weeks time.

It was an unreal experiences given how much a person can suffer from skin conditions like psoriasis. I know that petroleum jelly is often used as a base for many homemade topical herbal remedies, but the results I personally witnessed using the Irish moss instead is far better if not seem more healing for the skin in the long run, since petroleum jelly can some times encourage excessive dryness if repeatedly used.

this is amazing I bought it for a raw Pecan Pie. The Irish moss really is wonderful for thickening.The only thing anyone buying Fresh Whole Leaf Irish Moss is it comes from the sea and it has to be cleaned by you. It is full of sand and some sea debris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freshly harvested - Good Stuff! December 30, 2011
By S. Webb

This is the way I like my sea Moss. It is NOT powdered or Dry, rather just as if it would be if I were to get it right out of the ocean myself. Make sure you clean the sand and sea weed before you boil this! It becomes nice and Jello like upon cooling. A little goes a long way. Comes in resealable plastic bag, I keep mine in the fridge and pull as needed. I will buy this brand again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality! November 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you don't know this already, irish moss is expensive. This deal from Amazon is the most cost-effective that I've found (compared to Whole Foods and Mom's Organic). I use this for a lot of my raw food recipes. I like this better than lecithin. My only note on this is to make sure that you properly clean the moss once it's "plump." There's a weird smell to this. But I'm a little germophobic, so I use my veggie wash on this too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great find! July 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
This whole leaf Irish Moss is a new staple in our house. Who would have ever thought you can soak the moss overnight, cut it into small pieces, blend well in blender and that it would become a great tasteless thickener for so many uses. For a healthier alternative consider trying it out yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great moss! May 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
Great moss! Yes, it's raw and wildcrafted which means you'll have to rinse all the saltwater and sand and pebbles off before you use it but that didn't bother me none. Just soak and rinse repeatedly over a short period of time and then blend up in your high speed blender to make Irish moss 'gel'. Stores in the fridge for a spell and the 1lb bag lasts for a while. It's great for raw jams and some raw "bread" recipes. It's basically raw, whole-food carageenan which is used as a thickener in most processed foods. Great product; will order again.
