Sea Moss Flavors: Complete List & Guide

When I first heard of sea moss gels, I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I definitely didn’t know how this new food would fit into my diet.

After all, how many flavors could there be?

Raw sea moss has an earthy taste similar to clams and oysters. However, many companies produce gels with fruit flavors such as raspberry, pineapple, mango pineapple, strawberry, apple cinnamon, lemon/lime, and mixed berry.

Wow! That’s a lot of flavors to choose from.

In this article, we’ll explore the different flavors, how they’re flavored, and what you can do with them.

The Different Sea Moss Gel Flavors

Sea moss gels come in various fun fruit flavors that make the product easy to add to your daily life.

While the flavors will vary depending on the manufacturer, the most common flavors are as follows:

  • Plain (no flavoring)
  • Raspberry
  • Pineapple
  • Mango Pineapple
  • Strawberry
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Lemon/Lime
  • Mixed Berry with Elderberry
  • Elderberry/Bladderwrack

Because the natural gel has so little taste, the sea moss will take on the flavor of whatever fruit (or food) it is blended with.

As for the consistency, you’ll find it feeling and tasting a lot like a thicker apple sauce. I’ll eat the apple cinnamon right out of the jar! 

How Is Sea Moss Gel Flavored?

As I’m sure you already know, sea moss doesn’t grow in a strawberry flavor!

Because it comes from seaweed and the natural taste can be a bit off-putting, people have started blending fruit flavors with moss to make the healthy snack more palatable.

I start with dry sea moss straight out of a package when making flavored moss. I then thoroughly rinse the moss and begin soaking it in fresh water to ensure it’s soft enough to blend.

After that, I toss some fruit in the blender with the soaked sea moss, and that’s it.

I’ll add a little honey or agave nectar before blending if my sweet tooth is acting up. But really, that’s it!

You can rest easy knowing that this superfood is also wholesome and natural.

The flavoring doesn’t have to be fruit, either. If you have mint or rosemary oil, it can be a great way of sprucing up any dish you’re cooking.

Just be careful – you’ll need much less than you think.

What Can I Use Flavored Sea Moss Gel For?

Sea moss gel, or “vegan gelatin,” is a natural thickening agent often used in dairy products, ice creams, and soups. If you’re big into baking, it can also be used as a binding agent in place of eggs. 

My favorite way to use flavored sea moss is to toss a couple of spoonfuls into a smoothie!

Not only does it add a delicious fruit flavor, but it also helps the smoothie thicken up without the use of so much ice.

The nutrition boost is fantastic, too.

Another popular method is adding some to your tea. I can imagine a cool fall day with a hot cup of tea with an apple cinnamon punch.

You won’t need a lot – a little of this great product goes a long way.

What Does Sea Moss Gel Do For Me?

There are many physical benefits to sea moss and sea moss gels. The seaweed it comes from (Irish Moss) is considered a superfood and is used in numerous dishes to promote a healthier lifestyle.

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Heart-healthy
  • Weight loss
  • Good source of iodine
  • Gut health
  • Boost immunity
  • Builds muscle and aids in workout recovery

Man, I wish all my food worked this hard! We can see the heart-healthy benefits of lowering bad cholesterol and decreasing blood pressure.

Because sea moss gel is super high in fiber, it can be a great tool to aid in weight loss because high-fiber foods keep us fuller for longer. 

Iodine is a mineral we primarily receive through iodized salt, and it’s imperative to thyroid health.

Since our bodies can’t produce iodine, we must rely on our diet.

Like yogurt, sea moss has great live bacteria that are awesome for our gut health – a critical factor in our digestive and overall health.

Sea moss is high in iron and antioxidants and is believed to help boost your immunity, though no studies have confirmed this.

As for building muscle and recovery, sea moss is packed full of the amino acid taurine – a pivotal component of muscle-building.

It also packs a whopping 6 grams of protein per 100 grams of moss!

Conclusion

Sea moss gels come in a crazy number of flavors, and you can personalize those flavors by adding more or less fruit to the mix.

Some people add the flavored gels into smoothies or tea, and some (like me!) eat it with a spoon.

You can eat this superfood confidently no matter how you choose to eat your moss.
