View Full Version : Irish Moss Substitute?
07-31-2008, 12:29 PM
I have several recipes that use Irish Moss. We do not have any place locally that sells Irish Moss. I am also on a very tight budget so ordering items(more expensive when you add in the shipping cost)is out of the question right now. I would prefer not to use Lecithin. Is there something else that I could substitute for Irish Moss? Would dates or an avocado work?

I think you might try psyllium husks. The Irish Moss is more of a thickening agent I do believe. Might be wrong. Others will pipe in in a moment!

Thank you, I would have never thought of Phylium. Irish Moss is such an uncommon ingredient. Some recipes require ingredients that are impossible to locate unless you live near a really high quality health food store.

Or you could always order it online. http://www.homebrewers.com/product/6109A
Although, I sure wish that psyllium works. Anyone tried it yet?

I just saw a demonstration for using Irish moss on one of the gardening shows, either Gardeners diary ot Victory Garden. My interest is peaked, i'll see if I can locate a source through my local HFS.
