Irish Sea Moss is also known as Chondrus crispus, and is valued for its natural carrageenan content. It was eaten during the potato famine in Ireland, which gave this red seaweed its common modern name. Whole leaf sea moss is harvested along rocky Atlantic coasts in Europe, Canada and the United States. Often made into an almost flavorless gel, sea moss is added to sauces and ice cream to thicken them.
