Eaten raw from the ocean, sea moss has been described as having an earthy flavor that’s commonly compared to seafood such as clams and oysters. Others predominantly notice a salty taste. However, eating it raw isn’t really recommended for those that want a flavorless sea moss. When properly prepared, it has no flavor of its own and tends to acquire the flavor of the food in which it’s being added.
That ability makes it great for adding to everything from soups, stews and sauces to smoothies, casseroles and homemade ice cream. Sea moss is typically dried before being packaged for sale. The dried version is then made into a gel before being added to foods and beverages. Sea moss contains 92 of the 102 vitamins and minerals the body needs for good health.
For those that want a ready-made solution, a premade gel is sold, along with a powder and a supplement capsule. No matter what form individuals prefer, when purchased from a reputable company sea moss will have no flavor of its own. Jamaican see moss is dried to preserve its vitamin and mineral content, along with a percentage of its moisture levels.
Individuals don’t have to limit themselves to the edible versions. Sea moss is equally beneficial when used on the body. There are soaps and other herbal products in which sea moss is combined with mango, honey, turmeric, papaya or other types of fruits. It’s used in many over-the-counter beauty products.
Dried sea moss can last for up to a year if it’s in the original unopened package. Once a package of dried sea moss is opened, it will typically last for approximately 3 months if stored in a cool, dry place. When it’s been rehydrated at home and made into a gel, it will last for approximately 2 to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
