Description

Irish Moss, also calledĀ carrageen, is a red seaweed found along the shores of the Atlantic that is used in the food industry as a natural thickening agent and stabilizer, especially in dairy products.

Powdered Irish mossĀ is used as a clarifying agent by home beer brewers to induce protein coagulation, or “cold break,” in order to attract and bind solids so they can be more readily filtered from the finished product.
