History of Sea Moss

Sea moss is called Irish sea moss for a reason. People of Ireland started eating sea moss during the potato famine in the 1800s, and so the name! Soon, the red sea moss was incorporated into a variety of dishes like soups, jellies, pickles, salad dressings, and salads.

According to ancient folklore, people carried Irish sea moss on trips for protection and safety. It was a practice to keep Irish moss beneath rugs to increase luck and prosperity in a home. Due to this belief, people started using it as mattress stuffing too! It was also used in the treatment of tuberculosis and pneumonia as part of boosting the immune system.
