Carrageenan is hydrocolloid extracted from red seaweeds by mild alkali process. It is a linear sulfated polysaccharides which appear very similar but differ only in the number and position of the ester sulfate groups. In Indonesia, carrageenophytes which are widely cultivated are the Eucheuma genus, the Kappaphycus alvarezii (Cottonii) and the Eucheuma denticulatum (Spinosum).

Characteristics that make Carrageenan useful:

  • The ability to form infinite variety of gel texture at room temperature, firm or elastic, with high or low melting point
  • The ability to thicken, suspend and stabilizes particulates as well as Colloidal dispersions and water/oil emulsions
  • It doesn't require refrigeration, does not melt at room temperature, being stable throughout repeated freeze-thaw cycles
  • Solutions shear thin (providing ease of pumping) yet viscosity and suspending ability are quickly restored on standing
