Kappa Refined Carrageenan CAS No 11114-20-8 Food Grade Additives


1. Carrageenan is a white or off-white, odorless powder, extracted mainly from Chondrus ocellatus. Kappahycus alvarezii and Eucheuma cottonii. It has a high water solubility which is completely dissolved at 80 to form a heat reversible gel. i.e. turns into solution when heated, forms a gel when cooled down.

2. Carrageenan has been used as a natural food additives all over the world for long history. It's a harmless vegetable fiber which cannot be digested by humans. Carrageenan has gelling, thickneing, emulsifying, membrane and stabilizing properties. When carrageenan is applied in combination with other food gels, the synergies between them canb greatly improve the gelling effect, contributing to a higher gel elasticity and better water retention.

3. As a gelling agent, thickening agent or suspending agent, carrageenan is widely used in the production of jellies, chewy candies, beverages, meat products, dairy products, baking products, and sauces, The 70% total dietary fiber content also makes carrageenan a popular material in nutritional foods.
