Ingredients: dried Sea moss* (Mastocarpus stellatus) *Of biological origin

Origin: EU agriculture. Sea moss is harvested by hand in its natural environment on the coast of Galicia (Bay of Biscay and Portuguese Waters).

Sea moss has a spongy structure, with branched leaves and a narrow curled or twisted shape. Sea moss is a small red seaweed that turns green when heated. It has a crunchy texture and compares well with Irish moss. It is also called "false Irish moss".

Did you know that Sea moss has fantastic properties. It contains 15 of the 18 essential minerals that we need as humans.

Taste: Salty and sulphurous with a savory crustacean aroma. Without preparation, the seaweed is quite hard.

Use: Although we know Sea moss for making pudding, among other things, it has a wide range of applications, the most important property of which is the binding of liquid. In sauces, jams, jellies and desserts it acts as a thickener and stabilizer. But it is also used raw in salads, for example, and cooked in pies, quiches and stews. You can use it in cakes or (savoury) pies as a substitute for eggs or other binding agents. Sea moss fried is not only tasty, but also complements your dish as a decoration. You can even make super healthy sweets with this delicious seaweed.

It is packed with minerals and antioxidants. It is rich in protein, iodine, iron, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, copper, sulfur, vitamin A, and carrageenan. It has a detoxifying effect, stimulates the metabolism, relieves a sore throat and cough, helps with digestive complaints, regulates blood sugar, reduces inflammation, restores libido, dissolves stuck mucus, helps against insect bites and skin rashes.

Due to the high number of minerals and antioxidants, Sea Moss is made into a gel to make tea or to use in a smoothie, shake and soup. But especially as skin care: as a mask on your face and/or hair, to exfoliate (it removes dead skin cells). It works firming, moisturizing, softening, strengthens hair, skin and nails, anti-aging agent. You can store the jelly in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Recipe:  Sea moss gel

Take about 10 grams of Sea moss and let it soak in water for about 30 minutes, but it can also be longer. Note: the seaweed will double in volume. Make sure it stays submerged. Grind the whole with the blender and strain it. You can boil the residue alone (but all are also allowed) in some water for about 20 minutes. Then you can also grind the last bit of Sea moss completely fine and mix it with the other gel.

General: When used daily, the recommended maximum amount is approximately 5 grams of dried seaweed per day

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION / ALLERGENS

Store at room temperature in a dark and dry place. Once opened, store in an airtight container and consume before the best before date printed on the package.

The seaweed may contain traces of molluscs, crustaceans and fish and may contain small natural marine materials. The white color that can appear on the seaweed comes from the salt in the seaweed and provides a natural preservation.

Compostable foil

The compostable film is made from cellulose from wood. Because this is 100% compostable, the product can serve as food for new crops after use according to the cradle to cradle principle. The foil is sturdy, oil, moisture and freezer resistant, suitable for use up to 40°C and has a clear, transparent appearance. The film that Porto Muiños uses is a sustainable alternative to environmentally harmful plastic products and is certified for compostability, both industrial and GFT, according to EN13432, which means that it completely breaks down into CO₂ and water in a maximum period of 12 weeks
