Gum Carrageenan Kappa (Acid)
This is an excellent gelatin source for vegetarians. Kappa Carrageenan is a fine white powder produced from a compound found in red seaweed that is used as a food additive. It forms the firmest gel of all carrageenan used to thicken and stabilize, and as a fat substitute in low fat foods. Used primarily with dairy products to prevent separation and provide a consistent texture and is typically added to whipped cream to provide a consistent airy texture. Provides tenderness to low-fat meats and is used in the preparation of hotdogs.
