Carrageenan Description

Carrageenan is one of the natural carbohydrates (polysaccharides), which is derived from edible red seaweeds.

Carrageenan is used as a gelling agent, thickener and stabilizer in various commercial applications, especially in foods and sauces. In addition to these functions, carrageenan is used in laboratory medicine, medical formulations, cosmetics, and industrial applications.

The product is obtained from Eucheuma cottonii, a class of Red Seaweed. It is a food-grade carrageenan that acts as a natural thickener, binder, and stabilizer.

It is highly sensitive to potassium ions which enhances its gelling properties. It is stable in neutral or alkali medium and insoluble in organic solvents.

Gino Biotech was founded in 2010 as a company supplying carrageenan and agar-agar products.
