A natural hydrocolloid, carrageenan is a natural extract from specific red seaweed species that are farmed and processed. It is used as a suspending and emulsifying stablizer, thickener, binder and gelling agent. These outstanding properties makes it a very versatile ingredient, finding more usage in meat. Typical applications include cooked cured ham, poultry roll, and turkey breast. This refined kappa type is soluble in hot water at temperatures above 140 F. It is soluble in cold water medium when mixed with sodium salt. The same is true for both conditions when the medium is milk. The usage level is 0.3-0.6%.

This product is equivalent to Texturas Kappa.

This product is certified Kosher (Pareve) by the Orthodox Union

Just want to say thank you for a very speedy delivery. I placed my order for Popping Candy last week and it arrived in Switzerland this morning just in time for me to make my 'Exploding' Chocolate Dessert this weekend. Once again many thanks.
