Irish Moss, also known as Carrageen, is a dried red seaweed (rather than a moss) that is loved the world over and used in everything from drinks to desserts to home-brews. 

This "Red Algae" (though its colour may vary from green, to dark red, purple, yellow, brown, or white) is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, iodine, iron, folate, and many other essential vitamins and minerals = Irish Moss is a nutritional powerhouse with a vast array of uses:

In the Caribbean, where Irish Moss grows naturally in the ocean waters, it is the main ingredient in a beverage of the same name, which is often touted as an aphrodisiac.
In Venezuela it has been used for generations as a home remedy for sore throats and chest congestion, where it is boiled in milk and served with honey before bed.
In Ireland this dried seaweed has been used for centuries as a food additive and thickening agent and sometimes as a good luck charm!
