Market Trends

Kappa Carrageenan Ingredients are in High Demand in the Food Industry

Kappa Carrageenan is used in a variety of industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and others. In terms of utilization, the food industry has the biggest share of kappa carrageenan, mainly in dairy products. When kappa carrageenan is added to cottage cheese, it inhibits whey separation, and when a similar amount is added to ice cream, it prevents whey separation produced by other gums used to control texture and ice crystal formation.
Kappa Carrageenan is also found in the meat sector, as well as in water-based foods and pet feeds. The addition of kappa carrageenan to the brine solution used in the pumping of hams improves the product because it binds free water and interacts with the protein, allowing the soluble protein to be retained. Kappa Carrageenan's gelling, thickening, and stabilizing qualities also help to maintain the texture of watery foods.
