Carrageenan

Carrageenan is extracted from certain species of red algae seaweeds and has been used in a variety of food applications for a very long time.

Working with us, you can find the right carrageenan product to create textures ranging from free-flowing liquids to solid gels. In addition to offering standard types, we work in conjunction with customers to develop new products and formulations for specific applications.

• Kappa carrageenan forms firm, brittle gels.
• Iota carrageenan forms elastic gels and thixotropic fluids.
• Lambda carrageenan forms viscous, non-gelling solutions.
