Request for Real Time Carrageenan Prices:

Natural sulfated polysaccharides known as carrageenan are extremely flexible polymers that create curling helical shapes. A red seaweed called Irish Moss is used to make carrageenan. This British Isles-native edible seaweed has been used for hundreds of years in cooking and is frequently utilised in the food industry as a thickening and gelling agent.

The process of extraction is used to make carrageenan. The seaweed is picked and dried, then supplied to the industrial maker. The seaweed is properly cleansed before being pounded into a powder and filtered to remove impurities like sand and dirt. The cellulose is subsequently removed using filtration after this intermediate product has been treated with a hot alkali solution.

The major carrageenan-producing countries are Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia. Whereas, the leading suppliers are Spain, Singapore, Germany, India, Thailand, France, Denmark, and the Netherlands.
