Other carrageenan extraction processes

Honestly, I don’t know how many questions I get from people related to what is carrageenan. Carrageenan is able to produce or extract by using some methods, right? As previously mentioned, you can produce it by using semi-refined way. In this moment, we are going to talk other production ways that may seem easier than the first one. What is the crucial difference in the refining process? The simple answer is the way you filter and dissolve the raw material. These are done to remove cell wall debris in order to ensure that extraction is done properly and hygienist.

On the other hand, some people extract it by using mixed processing. We can find this process on South American seaweeds. It gives some of the benefits of cost. For your additional information, the low cellulose levels in some South American seaweed are still able to sell under the EU refined specification.
