Lambda Carrageenan is a natural polysaccharide present in some varieties of red algae, capable of forming colloidal dispersions or viscous gels in aqueous and/or milk media. This product is a polygalactose, linear polymers of alternating molecules of D-galactose and 3.6 anhydrogalactose. It is the only carrageenan that requires temperature for hydration because it has a content of about 35% ester sulfate and a low percentage of 3.6 anhydrogalactose confers its high hydration in water and cold milk, imparting high viscosity of these systems. Lambda Carrageenan is highly recommended for instant powder products where it is required to develop body without heating.
Gelymar is a global supplier that produces and markets carrageenan products for the Food, Beverage and Nutrition industry. This company has three products lines that include Carra™Gel, Carra™Lact, and Carra™Sol; and they are mainly produced from cold water seaweeds.
