Iota Semi Refined Carrageenan

Using natural strains of seaweed Eucheuma Spinosum which belongs to class: red seaweeds as raw material, after removing impurities and by fresh water washing and drying, Carrageenan is obtained. Further purification may be achieved by washing and drying. Iota Carrageenan is the only carrageenan style which is freeze/ thaw stable. Thus, a frozen Iota carrageenan gel will be completely syneresis-free when thawed. It is an excellent water binder in concentrations as low as 0.2%.
