An excellent gelatin source for vegetarians. Carrageenan Kappa is a talcum-like white powder made from a compound found in red seaweed used as a food additive. It forms the firmest gel of all carrageenans to thicken and stabilise and is a fat substitute in low-fat foods. In dairy products, it prevents separation and is added to whipped cream to give it a consistent airy texture. It's used in low-fat meats and hotdogs for tenderness.
