Carrageenan property

Solubility: insoluble in water, but swelling gel block, not soluble in organic solvents, soluble in hot water into translucent, colloidal solution (dissolved in 70 ℃ hot water faster;

Gel: in the presence of potassium ions can be generated by thermal reversible gel;

Thickening: form a low viscosity at low concentrations of Sol, close to the Newtonian fluid, high viscosity concentration Sol, there is a non-Newtonian fluid.

Synergy: locust bean gum and konjac gum, xanthan gum, colloidal synergistic effect, improves the elasticity of the gel and water retention;

Health benefits: carrageenan has the basic characteristics of soluble dietary fiber, carrageenan after in vivo degradation and the formation of soluble fibrin complexes. Coli Glycolysis into CO2, H2, biogas, and short-chain fatty acids such as formic acid, acetic acid, propionic acid, become the energy source of probiotics.
