Do you know what it is? Have you ever had it?
Ok, let’s talk basics. For the unacquainted, Sea Moss is a species of the red algae family that is sourced off the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America, where it grows abundantly. I, however have been lucky to secure my supply from the wonderful oceans off the coast of Jamaica.
Sea moss can also be found inhabiting the shelves of most food co-ops and health food stores and now it will be available in my online store as well.
If you’re already familiar with Sea Moss, your first encounter was probably at a health food spot where a demonstration was underway on, “How to prepared sea moss” when your greedy curiosity went on high alert and you became repulsed at the thought of consuming anything from the ocean that doesn’t have two eyes, am I right? Lol.
