Properties[ edit ] The molecular structures of different types of carrageenan Carrageenans are large, highly flexible molecules that form curling helical structures. This gives them the ability to form a variety of different gels at room temperature. They are widely used in the food and other industries as thickening and stabilizing agents. All carrageenans are high-molecular-weight polysaccharides made up of repeating galactose units and 3,6 anhydrogalactose 3,6-AG , both sulfated and nonsulfated. There are three main commercial classes of carrageenan: Kappa forms strong, rigid gels in the presence of potassium ions, and reacts with dairy proteins. It is sourced mainly from Kappaphycus alvarezii. It is produced mainly from Eucheuma denticulatum.
