Kappa semi-refined carrageenan in food 

What is Carrageenan?

       Carrageenan is obtained from various red seaweeds (marine algae). The major sources of carrageenan. Are now the two tropical red seaweeds Kappaphycus Alverezii and Eucheuma Denticulatum, also known as 'cottonii and spinosum' in popular literature. DEHUI is producing kappa carrageenan from Eucheuma Cottonii and iota carrageenan from Eucheuma Spinosum seaweeds.

        Carrageenan is used as a thickening, stabilizing or emulsifying agent in dairy products like chocolate milks, ice creams, milk puddings, yoghurts, flans and the like. It is also used in processed meats, dog foods, toothpastes, air freshener gels, and a variety of other food and non-food products.

        Carrageenan is frequently preferred over other thickening, suspending and binding ingredients because it is natural, economical, readily available and functional in an extremely broad application-based environments..

 

Application:

  • Desserts, ice cream, cream, milkshakes, sweetened condensed milks, and sauces: gel to increase viscosity
  • Beer: clarifier to remove haze-causing proteins
  • Pâtés and processed meats (ham, e.g.): substitute for fat, increase water retention and increase volume, or improve sliceability
  • Toothpaste: stabilizer to prevent constituents separating
  • Fruit Gushers: ingredient in the encapsulated gel
  • Fire fighting foam: thickener to cause foam to become sticky
  • Shampoo and cosmetic creams: thickener
  • Air freshener gels
  • Marbling: the ancient art of paper and fabric marbling uses a carrageenan mixture on which to float paints or inks; the paper or fabric is then laid on it, absorbing the colors.
  • Shoe polish: gel to increase viscosity
  • Biotechnology: gel to immobilize cells/enzymes
  • Pharmaceuticals: used as an inactive excipient in pills/tablets
  • Soy milk: used to thicken, in an attempt to emulate the consistency of whole milk
  • Diet sodas: mouthfeel and suspend flavors
  • Pet food
  • Alien saliva (movie effects)
  • Personal lubricants
  • Animal models of inflammation used to test analgesics (dilute lambda carrageenan solution (1–2%) injected subcutaneously causes swelling and pain)

 

Production Process:

         DEHUI produces Kappa and Iota from Euchema Cottonii and Eucheuma Spinosum seaweeds based on these essential phases.
