   NATURAL GRADE CARRAGEENAN

Natural Grade Carrageenan

 

  • Natural Grade CARRAGEENAN is a linear sulfated polysaccharide obtained from red seaweeds.
  • Has the unique ability to form a wide range of gel texture at room temperature, firm or elastic, with high or low melting point.
  • Gelation requires no refrigeration and the gels can be made stable throughout repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • Thickens, suspends and stabilizes particulates as well as colloidal dispersions and water/oil emulsion.
  • Solutions shear thin (providing ease of pumping), but viscosity and suspending ability is quickly restored on standing.

 

 

Production Description

Carrageenan is extracted from many species of red seaweeds.The process begins with harvesting, followed by drying, cleaning, bagging or bailing. Once in the factory, the seaweeds are sorted, tested for quality and stored.Before being processed, they are hand-inspected, then washed to remove dirt and marine organisms, and then subjected to hot alkaline extraction.When the carrageenan is dissolved, it is clarified through conventional filtration and is then concentrated by membrane ultrafiltration.The carrageenan is precipitated by alcohol or potassium chloride to separate it from soluble impurities.This is followed by drying and grinding to appropriate particle size.The carrageenan powder is blended and standardized to customer specifications before shipment.

The carrageenan family has three main branches: kappa, iota, and lambda, which are well differentiated in terms of their gelling properties and protein reactivity.Kappa carrageenan produce strong rigid gels, while those made with iota products are flaccid and compliant.Although lambda carrageenan do not gel in water, they interact strongly with proteins to stabilize a wide range of dairy products.

Carrageenan is highly versatile ingredient suitable for use in food and nonfood products.As convenience food and household products proliferate, so do markets for carrageenan.Here is just a sampling of established applications and functionalities.
