Lambda Carrageenan - 50g
Lambda carrageenan is a natural food gelling agent extracted from red seaweed. It is used as a suspending and emulsifying stablizer, thickener, binder and gelling agent. Lambda carrageenan is a soluble, non-gelling carrageenan that improves mouthfeel in dairy beverages.
In food applications, lambda creates a viscous but pseudoplastic solution, or shear-thinning, under mechanical action. In liquids, like dairy products, syrups, beverages, tomato sauce and salad dressings, lambda can enable a full bodied, creamy texture. The lambda form is also the only carrageenan which is cold-soluble without being a sodium salt.
