OCIA Certified Organic and a Raw Food
In Ireland, this short, bushy, red sea plant was traditionally boiled with milk and sugar to release the gelling agent (carrageen), then cooled to form a pudding, sometimes called "Blancmange." The carrageen extracted from Irish moss is used world-wide as a colloidal thickening agent in many foods and cosmetics. If you eat ice cream, you have already eaten this Irish moss extract. Available in flake or powder form.
