Sea moss…what do you do with yours? Expert chefs, health specialists, bakers and personal trainers integrate sea moss into their routines and tell all.
Sea moss is a water vegetable that traps sunlight and is packed full of essential minerals. It contains 15 of the 16 essential minerals that you need to function healthily. From calcium to zinc, these minerals support the healthy functioning of your blood, bones and muscles; the foundations of a healthy body. We clean it thoroughly and create our own sea moss gel. This can easily be added to smoothies, sauces and cakes. It can act as an egg replacement and is an excellent binder.

To promote veganism at the shop and via the website.
Have you heard of sea moss before?:
Yes I’d heard of it before.
What made you use it how you did?:
The neutral taste and consistency was similar to apple sauce, which I use a lot as an egg replacer. This made me think to use it in place of that as a binding ingredient.
Did/could it replace your typical ingredient?:
I wouldn’t use it to replace apple permanently but in some things it would work, I’d love more time to play around and experiment further.
How was it to work with?:
It was easy to work with and I intend to try and use it again in other bakes.
How did the finished product taste?:
I made rock cakes and they tasted great!
Would you use it again?:
