Product Description

Carrageenan is a naturally-occurring family of polysaccharides extracted from red seaweed. Upon cooling and in the presence of appropriate cations, (K+, Ca 2+), carrageenan polymers align themselves to form double helices. Iota carrageenan binds water and forms dry, elastic gel in the presence of calcium salts. Ca 2+ ions make bonds between the carrageenan molecules to form helices. The negative charges associated with the 2-sulphate groups on the iota carrageenan molecules do not allow the helices to aggregate to the same extent as Kappa carrageenan. Should be stored at room temperature, and is soluble in water at a concentration of 5 g/l, at 60 ° C.
