As Seaweed is gathered from the sea, it naturally contains iodine. Please contact your health care practitioner prior to the consumption of sea moss if you have sensitivities to iodine.

Irish moss, is not shellfish. It is a marine algae used as an emulsifier, stabilizer and thickener in many foods like dairy foods. It is safe for most people with food allergies.

Shellfish allergy is sometimes confused with iodine allergy because shellfish is known to contain the element iodine. But iodine is not what triggers the reaction in people who are allergic to shellfish. If you have a shellfish allergy, you do not need to worry about cross-reactions with iodine or radiocontrast material (which can contain iodine and is used in some radiographic medical procedures).
