IOTA dissolves in cold water and is heated to around 80 degrees for gelification. A soft gel that does not form while the mixture is stirred. If the gel breaks, it will reform if allowed to rest. Food-grade carrageenan is a purified extract from red seaweed, (Chondrus crispus). It is used as a thickener and stabilizer in a wide range of food products including frozen yogurt and reduced-fat ice cream. 

MFD Iota contains no fillers, sugar, starch or viscosity agents, like others on the market. This is why MFD has stuck with the same manufacturer for over 20 years. MFD directly imports this product from the manufacturer, while others who purchase and resell locally will constantly be out of stock. This makes a consistent product very difficult when buying from others. This purity of our product has resulted in a very strong following in the food manufacturing industry.

Carrageenan is an abundant, natural material used as a thickening agent. Growing conditions for the raw natural input are being effected by global warming. This is leading to research into new growing and farming methods.

Other thickening agents exist, but carrageenan represents our best choice because it is a naturally sourced material with little taste or odor which has a long history of safe use in food products. Used by Shannon Bennett in his Peach Melba recipe on masterchef season 4

Why do we charge for this paperwork?
The majority of our customers do not require this paperwork so we are able to pass on the savings. The cost of supplying this paperwork for a $10 product outstrips the product price. Compliance is a major cost to our company and if you require this then its only fair you share the cost. These fees can get quite high for example with all the information required for Organic Certification. See below on how to avoid the fees.

Don't want to pay for a certificate?
Then please purchase a box quantity of the product. This varies depending on the product but is usually a 25Kg container.
