Why Freeze Sea Moss Gel?

Freezing sea moss gel is an excellent way to preserve its freshness and extend its shelf life by around 5 months. By freezing it, you can maintain its nutritional value, texture, and overall quality for a longer period. Freezing also prevents spoilage and the growth of harmful bacteria, ensuring that your sea moss gel remains safe to consume even after an extended period.

Step 1: Gathering the Materials

Before you begin freezing your sea moss gel, make sure you have the following materials ready:

  • Sea moss gel
  • Freezer-safe container(s) or ice cube trays / silicone molds
  • Plastic wrap or freezer-safe lids
  • Labels or markers for proper labeling

Step 2: Preparing the Freezer-Safe Container

To ensure that your sea moss gel freezes properly and stays fresh, it's important to use a suitable clean freezer-safe container. Glass containers may crack or shatter in the freezer due to the expansion of liquids, so it's essential to transfer the gel into a more appropriate option. Consider using plastic containers or silicone molds that can withstand freezing temperatures without any issues.

Step 3: De-potting Sea Moss Gel from its Glass Container

De-potting the sea moss gel from its glass container is crucial to avoid potential accidents or damage during freezing. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Carefully remove the lid or cover from the glass container.
  2. Use a clean spoon or spatula to scoop out the sea moss gel.
  3. Transfer the gel into the freezer-safe container(s) you prepared in Step 2.
  4. Be cautious not to leave any air gaps or empty spaces, as they can lead to freezer burn or degradation of the gel's quality.
  5. Securely close the freezer-safe container(s) with plastic wrap or freezer-safe lids.

Step 4: Freezing Sea Moss Gel

Now that you have properly transferred the sea moss gel into freezer-safe containers, it's time to freeze them. Follow these steps:

  1. Place the sealed containers in the freezer, ensuring they are arranged in a flat position to avoid any spills or leakage.
  2. Avoid overcrowding the freezer to maintain proper air circulation, which facilitates better freezing.
  3. Set the freezer temperature to the recommended setting for freezing food items (usually below 0°F or -18°C).
  4. Allow the sea moss gel to freeze for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours or until it is completely solid.

Step 5: Thawing and Using Frozen Sea Moss Gel

When you're ready to use your frozen sea moss gel, simply thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours or add frozen to a blender or while cooking!

Conclusion

Freezing sea moss gel is an effective method to preserve its freshness, extend its shelf life, and maintain its nutritional value. By following the step-by-step guide outlined in this blog post, you can ensure that your sea moss gel remains safe and ready for use even after an extended period in the freezer.

Remember to transfer the gel from its glass container into a freezer-safe alternative to prevent potential accidents or damage. Properly labeled containers and careful freezing techniques will help you enjoy the benefits of sea moss gel for months to come.

So, the next time you find yourself with an excess of sea moss gel, don't hesitate to freeze it. With the right storage techniques, you can savour the goodness of sea moss gel at your convenience, knowing that it's preserved and ready to enhance your health and well-being.

 

Note

It is important to note that the sea moss should be sourced sustainably and have the proper phytosanitary certificates for its import country to ensure that it is pest-free, chemical-free and free from heavy metals.

Before consuming  sea moss it is always good idea to consult with a health professional and please note that it should be used in moderation.
