In beverages, it is used for clarification of beer and as a fining agent in wine to remove protein. It is primarily used as a stabiliser, thickener, protein stabiliser, and particle suspension and emulsifying agent in various processed food products such as salad dressings, ice creams, dairy based products, sour cream and chocolate milk. Carrageenan gum is widely used as a substitute for animal based gelatins in various food products for vegan consumers. Carrageenan gum is also used in diverse food applications such as confectioneries, beverages and bakery products. An increasing consumption of carrageenan gum in various processed foods across the globe is anticipated to boost overall growth of the global carrageenan gum market to a certain extent over the forecast period. Another factor driving global revenue growth of the food and beverages segment is that hydrocolloids, especially carrageenan gum, is used in meat products to impart viscosity and texture.
