Carrageenan Production Cost Reports

Food and Beverages

Carrageenans, also known as carrageenins, belong to the family of linear sulphated polysaccharides. Carrageenan is an extract of a red seaweed that is commonly known as Irish Moss. This edible seaweed is native to the British Isles, where it has been used in the conventional method of cooking for hundreds of years. Carrageenans have been used in Ireland since nearly 400 A.D. and in China since around 600 B.C. However, it was first introduced on an industrial scale only in the 1930s.

Carrageenans are large and highly flexible molecules that form curling helical structures. This provides them the ability to form a variety of different gels at room temperature. There are three main varieties of carrageenan, which differ in their degree of sulfation, namely, kappa, iota, and lambda.

They are most commonly used in the food industry for gelling, thickening, and stabilising. They find their primary applications in dairy and meat products. They are often used as a vegan alternative to gelatine in food products like confectionery.
