Abstract

Carrageenan is a food additive extracted from class Rhodophyceae. It is a family of sulphated polysaccharides and posses the hydrocolloid properties. Carrageenan is used as a food stabilizer, gelling and thickening agent. Carrageenan is high molecular weight polysaccharides with repeating galactose units. Lambda, iota and kappa are the commercial classes of carrageenan in which kappa forms strong rigid gels, iota gives soft gels whereas lambda does not form gel and is used as a thickener.

There has been rapid growth in food and beverage industry around the globe. The sharp rise in demand for gelling agents, food additives fuels the growth of carrageenan gum market. Moreover, rising demand for processed food along with an increase in spending capacity per captia is expected to propel the market growth. Furthermore, escalating food chain worldwide fosters the growth of carrageenan gum market.  However, the presence of substitutes in the market such as cellulose and xanthan is the only restrain for the carrageenan gum market. Nevertheless, superior gelling and additive properties of carrageenan gum is likely to offer ample opportunities for the market in the forecast period.
