Red or Blonde Irish Moss - Which is Better?
Also known as Sea Moss, Irish Moss has recently become popular again for it's amazing nutritional value. Many claim is reduces symptoms and suffering from a raft of ailments including bladder disorders, bronchitis, halitosis (bad breath), intestinal disorders and glandular problems to swollen joints, lung difficulties, thyroid conditions, tuberculosis, tumors, and ulcers.
Irish Moss is a red seaweed which Pacific Harvest sources from organically certified harvesting areas in France and Ireland. Typically Irish Moss is harvested from the ocean and left to dry in the sunshine. This results in the leaves becoming a little sun bleached, leaving more of a 'blonde' colour to the product. We have recently started to source Irish Moss which has been dried indoors where the contaminant risk is easier to control. If you have been purchasing Irish Moss from us for a while, you may notice this change in colour. It is still the same product, it's just not been left on the beach to dry in the sun.
All our seaweeds are tested for contaminants according to the strict Australia and New Zealand food standards.
