100% Pure Kappa Carrageenan (e407) for use as a gelling agent in molecular gastronomy. A natural hydrocolloid, carrageenan is a natural extract from specific red seaweed species that are farmed and processed. It is used as a suspending and emulsifying stablizer, thickener, binder and gelling agent. These outstanding properties makes it a very versatile ingredient, finding more usage in meat. Typical applications include making plant-based cheeses and usage in place of animal-based gelatin. This refined kappa type is soluble in hot water at temperatures above 180 F.
