Discover our broad range of products based on Carrageenan.
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.

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”.
