What is a Carrageenan?
Carrageenan is a general term of hydrocolloid contained in Red algae (Rhodopyta). It is roughly classified into three types: Kappa, Iota and Lambda. Kappa type is able to transform water gell to jelly of hardness and elasticity, which is easily influenced by water soluble protein, minerals and gums. Iota type produced fluid Thixotropic viscosity. Lambda type is easy soluble in cold water to form stable viscosity.
We have developed new type of Carrageenan CC-50 extracted from Cassia gum and algae. It is excellent in water gel strength and elasticity, and obtainable at a reasonable price like a super LBG. Its main use is gelling jelly or pudding with a creamy taste like ice-cream and also preventing processed meat liquid from separating. Furthermore, this special Carrageenan has many other uses as below.
1. Making ham, sausage or fish meal “Surimi” elastic.
2. Stabilizing dispersion of material in drink.
3. Molding a concrete products

Carrageenan is mainly composed of dietary fiber, which will balance nutrition better.
