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.
