Irish moss, also calledcarrageen, is a red seaweed found along the shores of the Atlantic that is used in the food industry as a natural thickening agent and stabilizer, especially in dairy products.
Powdered Irish mossis used as a clarifying agent by home beer brewers to induce protein coagulation, or "cold break," in order to attract and bind solids so they can be more readily filtered from the finished product.
Irish Moss Powder can be added to smoothies, encapsulated or mixed with a little water or juice. To increase the nutritional profile, soak in water for a few hours and allow it to form into a gel to thicken up smoothies. Typical Use: 1/4 teaspoon 1 - 3 times daily.
