Storing Sea Moss Gel
For optimal longevity, store your sea moss gel in an airtight container to keep air out. Then put it in the refrigerator (for up to one month) or freezer (for up to six months). This will hinder growth of harmful bacteria or mold, helping to ensure it doesn’t deteriorate rapidly. For something even more convenient, pour the sea moss into an ice cube tray and freeze it. Now it’s super convenient to toss a few cubes into your morning smoothie.
How to know if sea moss gel has gone bad
To ensure maximum freshness, it’s important to pay attention to the appearance and smell of organic sea moss gel. Spoiled products can appear watery, slimy, or moldy with a gray or white coating. If you notice any changes in color, or any strong odors like fishiness, your product has likely reached its expiration date and is no longer suitable for use. Please be aware that the original light tan/gray hue of sea moss will darken naturally during shelf life, however this also means that you should use it soon before spoilage sets in.
