Carrageenans are everywhere. In fact, people have been harvesting seaweed for centuries to take advantage of the extremely effective gelling properties carrageenans. Carrageenan is produced from Red Seaweed, mainly from Chile, which is a highly sustainable and natural source of raw materials. The seaweed is produced with no or very little land use and requires no fertilizers or irrigation etc.
Today, carrageenans are used to add texture and stability to a broad range of products including dairy desserts, processed cheese, chocolate milk and fruity jellies.
Carrageenans are also used in a variety of meat-based products providing firmness and texture to sausages and sliceability and juiciness to cooked ham.
Our refined and semi-refined carrageenan ingredients are perfect for a wide range of applications.
