Is your Sea Moss farmed or pool grown?
Our Sea Moss is Organic and Wild harvested directly from the Ocean and not farmed or pool grown.
Our Atlantic Sea Moss and Purple Sea Moss is harvested off the coast of St Lucia. Our Pacific Gold Sea Moss is harvested off the coast of Vietnam.
However, please see below the benefits that can be gained from farmed Sea Moss and why Sea Moss is no longer grown in pools.
Pool Grown Sea Moss
We have spent much time ensuring our Sea Moss is a quality, authentic product. From our research, it seems pool grown sea moss does not exist anymore. In the past, people have indeed tried to grow Sea Moss in pools. However this process is expensive and provides an inferior product as growers need to simulate ocean conditions i.e. waves, heat, light and nutritional content.
It has proven to be less expensive and provides a better quality product to harvest Sea Moss directly from the sea.
Farmed Sea Moss
Sea Moss farmed in its natural environment is organic as it has no chemical interference. It provides just as many nutrients as wild harvested Sea Moss and is a sustainable, environmentally friendly way of keeping up with increasing demands. As an organisation, we are looking into offering farmed as well as wildcrafted Sea Moss to our customers in the future.
Sea Moss is a red algae seaweed. Seaweeds do not have roots like land plant to save them from becoming waterlogged. Seaweeds can have holdfasts which secure them to rocks, but these give no nutritional value. Instead, seaweeds absorb their nutrients from their water column via their blades.
It was previously believed that Sea Moss received its nutrients from the rocks it fastens itself to and so farmed Sea Moss, which grows on lines in the sea, was thought to be a lesser product. However, now we know sea moss receives nutrients directly from water.
