GENUVISCO® Carrageenan

  • Overview
  • Properties

GENUVISCO® Carrageenan uses either Lambda or Iota types of carrageenan to form a soft, elastic gel with viscosity variations for soft and cold processing. Use it as a vegetarian gelling replacement to prevent cream separation in creamers and milk alternatives. Create the body and mouthfeel you desire in instant powder/dry mix beverage and dessert formulations.

On the personal care and household product side, GENUVISCO® Carrageenan acts as a multifunctional, water-binding agent to increase hydration. It provides a smooth, creamy texture to your emulsions and surfactant systems. A nature-based, vegan/vegetarian ingredient, it can be used to replace synthetics in shampoos, lotions and other product formulations.
