Dr. Sebi speaks on Irish Sea Moss (Chondrus Crispus) working as a natural yeast helping your baking to rise and become fluffy, also by adding natural sparkling spring water to your baking recipes it will greatly aid rising and fluffy consistency in your baking. IRISH MOSS CARRAGEENAN VS. CARRAGEENAN EXTRACT
Carrageenan, a type of polysaccharide, can be derived from irish moss (Chondrus crispus), in addition to other varieties of red edible seaweeds, like Kappaphycus alvarezii, one of the most important commercial sources according to Wikipedia.
Chemically processed carrageenan extract, also called "food grade" carrageenan, is nutritionally diminished and is not the same substance as whole irish moss seaweed. Manufactured carrageenan is an isolated compound extracted from red seaweeds and treated with harsh alkali solutions, like potassium hydroxide.
During processing the all-important cellulose is removed from the seaweed and the use of 5–8% potassium hydroxide is employed. "Potassium hydroxide solutions with concentrations of approximately 0.5 to 2.0% are irritating when coming in contact with the skin, while concentrations higher than 2% are corrosive." In an article provided by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, it essentially refers to potassium hydroxide as a toxic poisonous chemical that can have serious health effects if ingested. The amounts of potassium hydroxide present in carrageenan extract remains to be proven, but is a factor to take into consideration regarding its given side-effects.
Moreover, another important concern is that food-grade carrageenan can be degraded by acids in the stomach, turning it into poligeenan, a potential carcinogenic substance. According to the Cornucopia Institute and their Carrageenan Report, "Degraded carrageenan (poligeenan) is such a
potent inflammatory agent that scientists routinely use it to induce inflammation and other disease in laboratory animals, to test anti-inflammation drugs and other pharmaceuticals." #drsebi #alkaline #seaweed #sea #moss #ireland #irish #irishmoss #minerals #health #goodhealth #naturalremedy #naturalhealing #organicfood ( Via @alkaline_electric_vegan )
