What is Carrageenan

Carrageenan, a soluble fiber derived from red seaweed, is a natural food ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years in cooking all over the world. It often replaces synthetic and animal-based products.

Carrageenan E407 is extracted from seaweed, and it provides unique functional characteristics that can be used to gel, thicken and stabilise food products and food systems.  It plays an important and valued role in modern-day formulations providing texture, structure and physical stability in food products.

As one professional carrageenan supplier, exporter in China, Gino is dedicated to supplying superior products from reliable carrageenan manufacturers.

What is Carrageenan Made of?

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.

How is Carrageenan Made?

Raw Material (Seaweeds) Acceptance → Alkali Treatment → Washing & Soaking → Boiling → Filtering → Pushing Strips → Freezing → Dehydrating → Granulating →  Drying → Crushing → Sieving → Blending → Packaging → Metal Detecting → Finished Product
