Key Trends

The key trends in Food Grade Carrageenan technology are the use of carrageenan as a food additive, the production of carrageenan-based products, and the use of carrageenan in food packaging.

Carrageenan is a food additive that is used to improve the texture and stability of food products. It is also used to prevent the formation of ice crystals in frozen products. Carrageenan is derived from red algae and is available in two forms: Kappa and Iota. Kappa carrageenan is used in food products that require a firm texture, such as jellies and puddings. Iota carrageenan is used in products that require a softer texture, such as ice cream and cream cheese. Carrageenan is also used in food packaging to extend the shelf life of products by preventing the growth of mold and bacteria.
