Application of Carrageenan in Food

Application of Carrageenan in Food   Carrageenan has strong stability and its dry powder won’t get degraded for long time exposure. It is also very stable in neutral or alkaline solution, and won’t get hydrolyzed even with heat. In acid solution (especially pH≤4.0), however, can easily get acid hydrolysis and the gel strength and viscosity […] read more
