Irish moss is not actually a "moss" but a type of seaweed that has been used for centuries in Ireland (hence the name) as a healing sea vegetable used in soup broths that may help fortify and strengthen the body.

Irish moss is a nutrient rich sea vegetable that contains the thickening agent carrageenan. Carrageenan is used industrially in dairy products such as ice cream as well as processed meats.
