Sea Moss And Jellyfish Chips Grow In Popularity

August 8, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Alternative seafood ingredients such as jellyfish and sea moss are gaining popularity due to their nutritional value and low environmental impact. Sea moss, or Irish moss, is a reddish algae which grows abundantly on rocks of the coast of Britain, Ireland and North America. The food has become popular on social media and by celebrity endorsers due to its benefits for the gut, brain and heart. Sea moss is rich in phytochemicals, dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and is sold in dried, gel and capsule form. Sea moss-infused products are also coming to retailers; Selfridges’ new Feel Good Bar currently sells a sea moss chocolate shake and Tesco sells a vanilla-flavored sea moss canned drink. Jellyfish chips have been pioneered by scientists at the University of Southern Denmark, who compare the snack to pork rinds. They make jellyfish chips by soaking jellyfish in pure alcohol, drying them out and then adding salt and vinegar. The snack is zero calorie and high in protein, magnesium, iron, choline and vitamin B12. It has been endorsed by Sainsbury’s, which highlighted it in a recent future foods report. In addition to being nutritious, both sea moss and jellyfish are highly sustainable as they grow abundantly in the ocean and require no fresh water, land or fertiliser to produce.
