Organic Irish moss powder, also called carrageenan or Irish sea moss powder, is a superfood harvested in Ireland.
Irish sea moss is a superfood packed with minerals and antioxidants. It is rich in protein, iodine, iron, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, copper, sulfur, vitamins A, C and carrageenan. In total, it contains no less than 92 of the 102 minerals that are active in the human body, of which 15 of the 18 are essential minerals.

Recipe: Making gel from sea moss powder.
The powder is ready for use.
# Take 25 grams of sea moss powder and put it in a pan.
# Add 500 ml of water and soak for 30 minutes.
# Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
# Blend the whole thing until a smooth gel is formed.
# For an extra vitamin boost, taste and aroma, you can add lemon juice/orange juice while blending.
# Put it in a sealable jar and let it cool and put it in the refrigerator. It will then thicken a little more.
Keep in mind that if you add moisture from something else, you use less water.
If you want a thicker gel, use more seaweed or less water.
Tip: you can also make gel with other types of sea moss (including Mastocarpus stellatus).
