KAPPA will mix while cold and bring to the boil. Its rapid gelification allows the user to cover ingredients. Once the gel has set it can with stand temperatures of up to 60 degrees. 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. Carrageenan is an abundant, natural material which is very useful as a thickening agent.
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.

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.

Love it!19 August 2014I live in Adelaide and within three days it was on my doorstep. I thought the price was reasonable as was the postage. I have used it in various vegan cheeses with no issues at all. I highly recommend it and will shop here again. Thank you
