    Alginates

    Our Products

    Discover our broad range of products based on Carrageenan.

    Alginates

    Alginate is an anionic polymer that occurs naturally in brown algae (Phaeophyceae), normally present on the cell walls of these organisms.

    Alginate is a structural element designated to be the seaweed’s main skeletal compound, similarly to the cellulose function in terrestrial plants. Thanks to the gel located in the cell walls and intercellular matrix conferring the mechanical strength and flexibility, alginate are able withstand the force of the water in which the seaweed grows.

    Moreover, this function is reflected in the compositional difference of alginates in different seaweeds. Industrial applications of alginate are linked to the gelation, viscosity, and stabilizer properties that alginate attributes to the solutions and products.

    The alginate shell is a special combination of hydrocolloids, proteins and seaweed fibers. Most often it is used for stuffing in a co-extrusion line.

      Carrageenans

      Our Products

      Discover our broad range of products based on Carrageenan.

      Carrageenans

      Carrageenans are a family of linear sulphated polysaccharides that are extracted from red edible seaweeds.
      They are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties. Their main application is in dairy and meat products, due to their strong binding to food proteins. Carrageenan is also a vegetarian and vegan alternative to gelatin in some applications, in some instances it is used to replace gelatin in confectionery.
      In the meantime, carrageenan is considered a dietary
      fiber technically.

      It has no taste or smell, so it can be used for many food
      applications. The gels it creates are heat-reversible.
      Additionally, in connection with konjac gum (and some
      other hydrocolloids) it alters properties of gels making

      There are three main varieties of carrageenan Kappa-carrageenan (E407), Kappa Semi-Refined Carrageenan (E407a), Iota-carrageenan, which differ in their degree of sulphation:

      All of them are soluble in hot water, but in cold water, only the lambda form (and the sodium salts of the other two) are soluble. When used in food products, carrageenan has the EU additive E-number E407 or E407a when present as
      “processed eucheuma seaweed”.

      Synergy with Lauta products

      Interaction or cooperation of two or more substances or agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their seperate effects. Our products are pure and remedine carragide products, pure product recommendations plus refined-IOTA carrageenan.

        Konjac gum

        Our Products

        Discover our broad range of products based on Carrageenan.

        Konjac Gum

        Konjac gum and konjac glucomannan are two water-soluble hydrocolloids that can be used as a thickener, stabilizer, gelling agent, film former and fat replacer in food, with the European food additive number E425(i) and E425(ii), respectively.

        Application – Konjac is commonly used as a gelling agent to produce heat-stable and thermally-reversible gelled foods as follows:

        Pastas
        Noodles
        Prepared meals
        Jellies
        Jams

        Konjac also functions as a thickener and stabilizer in bread, cakes, meat products, ice cream and beverages.

        Meat

        Konjac is as a binder in meat with the properties of thickening, emulsification, water retention and gelling. Meanwhile, it is often used as a fat substitute, e.g. sausage and ham. It enhances water holding capacity, improves meat texture and reduces the fat content.

        Starch products

        Konjac improves the gelatinization, rheological and texture properties of starch by crosslinking, agglom-eration and other reactions with starch. These properties are closely related to the texture, taste and quality of the food. The blends of starch and konjac have a better thickening effect and stability. Meanwhile, the gel formed by the mixture has lower hardness and elasticity. Adding konjac to conveni-ent rice improves the mouthfeel, makes it tastes closer to fresh rice.

        Health benefits

        Konjac glucomannan is nondigestible carbohydrate that was listed as a dietary fiber by the FDA on Jan 10, 2020. Dietary fiber has health benefits as follows:

        • Lowering blood glucose / blood pressure / cholesterol levels
        • Improving laxation
        • Reducing energy intake

        Consumption of glucomannan also helps lose weight.

            Applications

            Discover our broad range of applications based on Carrageenan.

            Meat

            Carrageenans are used in the meat industry: Carragenans – semi-refined as well as refined are widely used in the meat industry.

            The dosages are between 0.1% -0.5% and give excellent results in the end product:

            • Improves product quality by enhancing texture, cut and bite
            • Improves water binding in production process and storage
            • Increases yield by binding more brine
            • Stabilises water-fat-protein emulsion preventing separation of the fractions, which in effect gives a more homogenous, better cut
            • Carrageenans dissolve well in water without increasing its density, which makes injecting easier – low density is retained until the heat treatment
            • Improves freeze and thaw stability

            Thanks to the good synergy with gums, carrageenans are often used in following applications:

            • Pork and poultry smoked products
            • Pork, beef and poultry sausages
            • Luncheon meat and other block products

              Jelly & Soft Candies

              Applications

              Discover our broad range of applications based on Carrageenan.

              Jelly & soft candies & pudding

              Carrageenan is an ideal additive for making desert jellies as it forms transparent gels that are heat reversible. It helps set the jelly with a high solidifying and melting point. Gel is formed at room temperature, so the products do not require refrigeration. Low syneresis is an additional quality advantage.
              Advantages:

              • Clear gel
              • Low syneresis
              • Cost effective
              • Customised firmness
              • Heat reversible
              • Heat reversible
              • Fully elastic and has no off-water property
              • The transparent fruit sweets made by carrageenan have rich fruit flavours and moderate sweetness. Besides, these fruit flavors are tasty, do not stick to the teeth and are transparent. If added to ordinary hard candies or soft sweets, carrageenan improves the flavor and stability.

              We have a wide range of blends for this application. The blends are tailored to Client’s needs.

              OUR OFFER:

              Jellies

                  Dairy

                  Carrageenans are successfully used in a variety of dairy products in order to create a delicate, creamy texture, while providing the stability of the product. Application of carrageenans give producers the possibility of creating new and competitive products of very high quality and stability.

                  Small doses of carrageenans (the quantity depends on the type of product), especially used in combination with guar gum and xanthan, give the following effects:

                  • Interacts with milk proteins to stabilize the system
                  • Combines with casein and thereby prevents the precipitation of this protein
                  • Provides appropriate viscosity of solution
                  • Protects the product from changes in texture e.g. changing temperature during transport
                  • Gives a sense of homogeneity and delicacy
                  • Prevents secretion of additives such as cocoa, delicacies, etc.

                  Carrageenans are used in the dairy industry in the following groups of products:

                  • Yogurt, kefir, ice cream, dairy desserts
                  • Flavoured milk
                  • Cottage cheese, flavoured homogeneous cheese
                  Puddings
                  Milk drinks
                  Cocoa milk

                    The Power of Carrageenan

                    The Power of Carrageenan

                    Carrageenan is used in multiple branches of food industry, for instance dairy products (butter, cream, ice-cream, yoghurt), meat products (pâté, cold cuts, sausages), bakery products, fruit products (jam, jelly, marmalade) and pet food. The reason for this is because of their gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties. They could be also used as a vegetarian and vegan substitute for gelatin in some products.
