Kappa Carrageenan

Chimique Kappa Carrageenan is a polysaccharide extracted from certain species of red seaweed and is widely used in the food industry as a thickening, stabilizing, and gelling agent. It is plant-based, non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher (OU) and keto-friendly. Chimique Kappa Carrageenan forms strong, rigid gels in the presence of calcium ions, making it suitable for a variety of applications such as dairy products, desserts, meat products, and sauces. Its ability to form gels with a wide range of textures, from brittle to elastic, makes it a versatile ingredient in food formulations.


  • Refine texture, achieve precise cuts, and enhance mouthfeel.
  • Enhance water binding for optimal moisture retention.
  • Maximize yield by improving brine binding capabilities.
  • Stabilize emulsions to prevent fraction separation and ensure product integrity.
  • Seamless dispersion of carrageenan in water, facilitating injection processes.
  • Improve freeze-thaw stability for consistent product quality.
  • Combined with Locust Bean Gum, Kappa gum exhibits enhanced gelling properties and develops elasticity.
