CARRAGEENAN

Refined Carrageenan in a bottle with dried seaweeds beside it.

Carrageenan is a water soluble gum that is considered to be one of the most versatile food ingredients that caters to a diverse application base because of its broad range of properties – providing gelling, thickening and water binding. This food ingredient is extracted from red seaweed types that belong to the Rhodophyceae family, which massively thrives in the tropical waters of the Philippines.

 

 

 

Carrageenan is classified into three main types:

(1) Kappa (thermo reversible brittle gel formation)

(2) Iota (thermo reversible elastic gel formation)

(3) Lambda (thickener, non-gelling)
