Thickening Agent For Meat Products
Carrageenan, also called carrageenan, carrageenan, is a kind of water soluble extract of marine red algae colloid, is the world's three largest seaweed glue industrial products (agar, carrageenan, sodium alginate) of. As a natural food additive, carrageenan has been used in the food industry for decades.
What can carrageenan do in meat products? Carrageenan can be used as thickening agent in meat products.
Carrageenan is used in poultry products to enhance and provide benefits in maintaining moisture, flavor, texture, cutting, freezing, melting, and stability. In addition, because carrageenan is dispersed in cold salt and does not increase brine concentration, it will not cause inconvenience in poultry meat water treatment. The combination of K and L carrageenan or K carrageenan with locust bean gum will make broth gel, and the flavoring will also be suspended in broth, clearly visible, and can keep the flavor of fish in the can. K carrageenan, locust bean gum and KCL solution, forms a membrane on the surface of frozen fish, which protects the fish from being broken and remains intact during processing without mechanical damage. In ham production, K carrageenan combines with free water and acts with proteins to ensure moisture content and soluble protein content. In recent years, the number of poultry food market demand continues to rise, consumers need easy processing, price stability and high protein low-fat meat, so meat processors are brought in poultry by heat treatment or mechanical handling problems. These problems include protein denaturation (will change the texture or loss of water), fat oxidation (will lead to the loss of flavor) and freezing thawing stability (which will produce ice, in the meat so that the meat texture deterioration), and these problems can be used carrageenan, phosphate, salt, starch other additives to complete.
