Carrageenan

 
 
 

A unique, sustainable line of ingredients for making foods and beverages more nutritious and delicious

 
 
 

Extracted from red seaweeds found off the coasts of the Philippines, Indonesia, Canada, Tanzania, and Chile, carrageenan is a naturally occurring hydrocolloid that provides structure, gelation and viscosity for a variety of food applications.

The seaweeds used to produce carrageenan are incredibly sustainable. Wild harvested red seaweeds use no land and require no fertilizers or irrigation. Seaweeds are harvested using sustainable ocean management and harvesting practices. This makes it a great ingredient for today’s environmentally conscious consumers.
