Irish Moss (Chondrus crispus)

 also known as Carrageenan and Pearl Moss, is a seaweed that grows among submerged rocks off the coast of France, Ireland, and eastern Canada. Found on rocky shoes in the lower intertidal area, the blades are flattened and forked repeatedly, and the color ranges from a dark purplish red to brown, green, yellow or white, depending on exposure to sunlight. Irish Moss was consumed by the Irish during the famine of the 19th century, and was once used as a mattress stuffing, as cattle feed, and as a thickener for colored inks used in printing. Current industrial uses include the carrageenan being used as a stabilizer in dairy products, as a binder in pharmaceuticals, and as a thickener in soups.

Our Irish Moss (Chondrus crispus) is harvested from the shores of Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.
