Dried Irish Sea Moss - a unique plant-based alternative to gelatin or collagen, which is used in the kitchen as a thickener and stabilizer

Dried Irish Sea Moss is a species of red algae (Chondrus crispus), which stands out not only for its beneficial nutrient content, but especially for its potential use in the kitchen and cosmetics. It grows mainly on the rocky coasts of the Atlantic Ocean and, as the name suggests, is most widely gathered in the Irish region. Due to its properties, it is often referred to as a plant-based alternative to gelatin or collagen. 


It is important to rinse Irish moss thoroughly before use. This will remove the salt and leave a neutral taste. After soaking and mixing in water, it forms a gel which serves as a thickening agent and stabilizer. In the kitchen, it can be used in the preparation of sweet and savoury dishes. It gives them a thicker, more uniform (homogeneous) and smoother texture. It is suitable for making homemade cheese, yoghurt, cream, ice cream, candies, cheesecakes, no-bake cakes, fruit cakes with gelatin and raw desserts. Furthermore, it is also great for thickening spreads, sauces or soups. It can be even used to substitute eggs in recipes as it has great binding power. 


Dried Irish Sea Moss is not only a great kitchen helper, but it is also popular in cosmetics. Thanks to its ability to retain water, it is added to moisturizing soaps, creams, face masks and shampoos. It is therefore a versatile product that can be used in every household. It has a 100% plant-based composition, making it suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Recommended use

Before use, rinse thoroughly. Then soak the seaweed in a container with enough water to fully submerge it for 4 to 12 hours, allowing it to absorb water and soften. You can consume it as is or blend it into smoothies, shakes, and other beverages. The seaweed can also be soaked in warm water and blended into a gel for use in desserts, yoghurt bowls, creams, pies, and other dishes. Alternatively, it can be used as a thickener when cooking soups, rice porridge, and various other meals.
