Semi-Refined Iota-carrageenan

  Iota-carrageenan is high-molecular-weight hydrophilic polysaccharide extracted from Eucheuma Spinosum. It is also known as calcium sensitive carrageenan, which forms soft gels in the presence of calcium ions. Due to its remarkable properties in gelling, thickening, emulsifying, film forming and stably dispersing, it is extensively applied in various fields such as diary products, meat products, dietary supplements and cosmetics etc.
