Carrageenans represent a family of linear polysaccharides isolated from red seaweed species, and are generally categorised into three primary classes: kappa, iota and lambda, according to chemical structure and physical properties. Combination of different types of carrageenan can perform various functionalities in food application. Carrageenan is commonly used as a gelling agent, thickener, stabiliser and clarifying agent. In the food industry, carrageenan can be used in meat, dairy beverage, water gel, beer, ice cream and many more. As a texturiser, carrageenan helps to keep firmness, increase cooking yield, improve freeze-thaw stability, improve slicing ability, and give a stable and creamy texture.
