Carrageenan (E407 & E407A) is a collective term used for polysaccharides prepared by alkalinization extraction from red seaweeds. Carrageenan is a natural ingredient obtained from certain species of the red seaweed called Rhodophyceae.
Different seaweeds and processes produce different types of carrageenans. Over the years, the popularity of using carrageenan for various food and non-food applications has experienced steady growth through-out the world.
MFC Carrageenan is made from selected Eucheuma Cottonii and Spinosum, a locally grown red seaweed species in the Philippines.
Although there are many different ways to produce and process carrageenan, we produce our carrageenan products using technically sophisticated processes with the use of the most advanced technology available today.
MFC Carrageenan is made through a thorough KOH alkali solution treatment. To preserve the quality, the eucheuma seaweeds are carefully sun-dried and passes through an extensive selection process prior to treatment and processing. The dried seaweeds are then classified, cleaned and washed to remove impurities.
The carrageenan is then extracted by alkalinization treatment and then purified before being milled.
MFC guarantees that our customers get only the best and highest quality carrageenan.
