Where is carrageenan obtained from?
The main species of Rhodophyceae used in the commercial production of carrageenan include Eucheuma cottonii and E. spinosum, now reclassified as Kappaphycus alverezii (`Cottonii') and Eucheuma denticulatum (`Spinosum').
Eucheuma cottony and E. spinosum are now heavily used by carrageenan producers and are harvested in large quantities in Indonesia and the Philippines.
