Introducing Sette Mari Carrageenan, meticulously extracted from Eucheuma seaweeds.

This semi-refined Carrageenan, known as E407a, boasts exceptional thermoreversible gel-forming abilities, especially in the presence of potassium ions. It remains impressively stable in alkali mediums. This naturally occurring carbohydrate, hailing from red seaweed, offers a versatile range of textures – from flowing liquids to resilient gels, making it an invaluable tool across diverse industries, particularly renowned for its prowess as a stabilizing and thickening agent in food production.

Through a meticulous process of washing and alkali treatment, the carrageenan is retained within the cell wall matrix of the seaweed. Commercial-grade carrageenan products undergo precise standardization to ensure consistent performance, especially in gelling and thickening applications. Composed of high-molecular-weight polysaccharides, it features repeating galactose units and 3,6 anhydrogalactose (3,6-AG), both sulfated and nonsulfated, connected through alternating alpha 1–3 and beta 1–4 glycosidic linkages.

Within the commercial sphere, two prominent classes stand out:

  • Kappa: Esteemed for its robust gel-forming ability, particularly in the presence of potassium ions, it plays a crucial role in interactions with dairy proteins. Kappaphycus alvarezii stands as its primary source.
  • Iota: Demonstrating a penchant for yielding soft, pliable gels in the presence of calcium ions, it is predominantly sourced from Eucheuma denticulatum.

Distinguishing factors between kappa and iota carrageenan revolve around the number and placement of ester sulfate groups on the galactose units. Higher levels of ester sulfate tend to lower solubility temperatures and yield gels with reduced strength.

While both forms readily dissolve in hot water, only the sodium salts of both variants exhibit solubility in cold water.

In the realm of food production, carrageenan is distinguished with EU additive designations E407 or E407a, particularly when sourced from "processed eucheuma seaweed." Widely employed as an emulsifying agent, it contributes to the stability and texture of a wide array of consumable goods.

In regions such as Scotland and Ireland, it enjoys local acclaim under the name Carrageen Moss. Here, it is delicately simmered in milk, strained, and enriched with a blend of sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, brandy, or whisky, culminating in a dessert with a texture reminiscent of pannacotta, tapioca, or blancmange.

The synergistic partnership of iota carrageenan with sodium stearoyl lactylate (SSL) yields exceptional stabilizing and emulsifying effects not replicated by other carrageenan types or emulsifiers. This dynamic combination excels in creating emulsions under varying temperature conditions, and accommodates the use of both vegetable and animal fats.

Across the United States, carrageenan is a valued component in the formulation of soy milk products, notably within the offerings of the esteemed Whole Foods brand. This speaks to its widespread application and versatility in modern food production.
