● Solubility: insoluble in cold water, but swellable into a rubber mass, insoluble in organic solvents, easily soluble in hot water into a translucent colloidal solution (in 70 °C hot water above the dissolution rate increases;
Gelation: It can generate thermoreversible gel in the presence of potassium ions;
Thickening: When the concentration is low, a low-viscosity sol is formed, which is close to Newtonian fluid. When the concentration is increased to form a high-viscosity sol, it is a non-Newtonian fluid.
● Synergy: synergistic effect with colloidal locust bean gum, konjac gum, xanthan gum and other colloids, can improve the elasticity and water retention of the gel;
● Health value: Carrageenan has the basic characteristics of soluble dietary fiber. Carrageenan degraded in vivo can form soluble complexes with fibrin. It can be digested by large intestine bacteria into CO2, H2, biogas and short chain fatty acids such as formic acid, acetic acid, and propionic acid, and become a source of energy for probiotics.
