So, what is irish moss gel?

Irish moss gel is a nutritious and versatile food ingredient extracted from dried red algae called Chondrus crispus. This translucent, odorless, and tasteless gel is rich in minerals like iodine, calcium, and magnesium, making it an excellent source of nutrition for vegetarians and vegans. It also contains polysaccharides that give it its unique gelling properties, making it a popular thickening agent in various culinary applications, including vegan desserts, soups, and smoothies. Irish moss gel is easy to make, has a long shelf-life, and can be stored in the refrigerator for future use.
