Like all seaweeds, Irish moss is rich in the minerals iodine and selenium. These minerals are essential for the healthy production of hormones in the thyroid, and many thyroid conditions are attributed to a lack of these vital minstrels. As such, Irish moss could contribute to the normal function of the thyroid and alleviate the associated symptoms.
Irish moss, also known as sea moss, is loaded with nutrients, vitamins and other minerals including potassium, manganese, phosphorus, bromine, calcium, zinc, beta-carotene, sulphur, protein and B vitamins and vitamin C. In fact, Irish moss is so nutrient dense it contains 92 of the 102 minerals found in the human body, contributing to its fantastic immune system boosting benefits.
Because of the broad spectrum of nutrients found in Irish moss it is a very beneficial and popular food for vegans and vegetarians to provide nutrients that they may not find elsewhere in their diet. Irish moss also acts as a fantastic thickening agent, it creates a gel that can be used in sauces, soups, smoothies, desserts and so much more as an alternative to traditional thickeners with added health benefits.
Irish moss can be soaked and added to salads, stews, dips, pasta, soups, in raw food dishes or find it in many recipes as a thickening agent.
