Sea moss is a spiny sea vegetable that’s primarily harvested for use in health supplements and as a thickening ingredient in commercial foods.
It’s an edible sea plant similar to other seaweeds, algae, and other familiar leafy sea vegetables like kelp or dulse.
Sea moss grows in a number of colors, such as various shades of green, yellow, purple, red, brown, and black.
The most common varieties that grow in the warmer waters are generally red and often called Irish moss. Our sea moss is harvested in St Lucia by one of our local vendors.
Sea moss has some proposed benefits such as gut health, thyroid health, skin health, immune health and more.
