Frequently asked questions

What is Irish Sea Moss?

Irish Sea Moss is a type of red algae (seaweed) that grows on the Atlantic coastlines of Ireland, North America & Europe. The scientific name of Irish Sea Moss is Chondrus Crispus.

Irish Sea Moss has been harvested and consumed in Ireland for hundreds of years and used as a natural remedy for many conditions from the flu to fatigue. During Ireland's potato famine in the 1940's, Irish sea moss was commonly used as food to help prevent sickness and nutritional deficiencies.

Where does Irish Sea Moss come from?

All of our Irish Sea Moss is harvested from the rocks by a fourth generation family in County Clare on the West Coast of Ireland. They have been hand-picking organic seaweed for over 100 years from the pristine nutrient rich waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Our organic seaweeds are harvested sustainably and undergo thorough testing such as heavy metals and microbiology to ensure is only the finest organic seaweed is sent to our customers.

Is Sea Moss the same as Irish Sea Moss?

Sea Moss is a general term that is used to describe a few types of seaweed, such as Eucheuma cottonii or the genus Gracilaria, different species of seaweed that is commonly referred to as Jamaican Irish Moss or just Sea Moss which grows in warm water regions.

 This is not the same seaweed as Irish Sea Moss which is scientifically known as Chondrus Crispus. Which grows in cold water regions such as Ireland.

The “Sea Moss” that is mentioned online is Chondrus Crispus, which all articles are referring to when you read them. However 99% of the companies selling Sea Moss are NOT selling Chondrus Crispus, they are selling poor quality Gracilaria which may actually be detrimental to your health.

Sea Moss (Euchema & Gracilaria) is generally grown on ropes in the warmer oceans such as Vietnam and St. Lucia.

Whilst Irish Sea Moss only grows naturally along the coast in cooler waters such as the Atlantic Ocean around Ireland and parts of Europe. We only use Organic Irish Sea Moss which is hand-picked on the rural coastline of County Claire in Ireland.

What does Irish Sea Moss smell and taste like?

Our Sea Moss gel has very little taste or odour. The main profile is a little earthy with the taste of seaweed, we do add freshly squeezed lime and a pinch of organic coconut sugar to give it a fresher, smoother taste.

However as a natural product which we do not add any preservatives or chemicals to, the odour becomes stronger with time. This is 100% natural.

Also our different blends will effect the flavour profile slightly from the added ingredients.

Is Irish Sea Moss safe for everyone?

Irish Sea Moss is generally considered safe for the whole family including children. However, some individuals may have specific allergies, sensitivities, or medical conditions that could warrant caution or avoidance. It's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about consuming Irish Sea Moss.

 Due to the power of Irish Sea Moss it is generally not recommended for people who have pre-existing thyroid disorders which are currently being treated with medication due to the levels of iodine which could interact with medication.

It is also not recommended to be taken by pregnant women, please consult your healthcare professional if you wish to do so.

Can Irish Sea Moss help with weight-loss?

Irish sea moss is low in calories and high in dietary fibre, which can help promote a feeling of fullness and potentially support healthy digestion. Additionally, its iodine content may play a role in supporting proper thyroid function, which can positively influence metabolism.

However, it's essential to understand that weight loss is a complex process that involves various factors, including overall calorie intake, macronutrient balance, physical activity, and individual metabolism. Simply consuming Irish sea moss without addressing these other factors is unlikely to lead to significant weight loss.

My Gel has some dark spotting in it, is it clean?

Yes, our Irish sea moss is cleaned thoroughly and we remove all ocean particles such as crustaceans that are naturally attached to Irish Sea Moss. The brown/dark spots in our Irish Sea Moss comes from variance in the colour of the moss. When the Irish Sea Moss is blended, you may see these dark spots of colour which is perfectly normal.

My Gel appears to be more liquid like when delivered?

It is very normal for your Irish Sea Moss Gel to lose its' gel like form during shipping. All of our Irish Sea Moss gels should be placed in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the gel reform into this consistency.
