Product Description

Carrageenan

Carrageenan can melt into solution after being heated and the solution can coagulate into gel after being cooled.  Carrageenan has good water-solubility. When used in combination with konjac gum, locust bean gum and xanthan gum, it can functions as strong coordinator and reinforce, distinctly altering the gel characteristics and making the gel elastic and water-keeping.   

Carrageenan, also known as Irish moss gelose or Eucheuman, is a natural hydrocolloid extracted from certain species of red seaweeds. It consists mostly of the calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium sulfate esters of galactose and 3, 6-anhydrogalactose polysaccharides. Due to its unique characteristics of hydrophile, gelling, thickening, emulsifing and stabilizing, carrageenan is widely used in various fields, such as food industry, chemical engineering and medical research.Selects top quality cultured Eucheuma seaweed harvested in Philippines and Indonesian natural seashore, to extract carrageenan and refine with the most advanced techniques. Product quality is superior than national standard GB15044-2009 and conforms to WHO JECFA and EU E407 regulations.
