Native carrageenan has molecular weights of 1.5 x [10.sup.6]-2 x [10.sup.7] (28); poligeenan or degraded carrageenan is described as having average molecular weight of 20,000-30,000 (4).
For use in experimental models, degraded carrageenan (poligeenan) is derived from carrageenan by acid hydrolysis, frequently by a method developed by Watt et al.
Hence, it is possible that humans, either by endogenous acid secretion, by co-consumption of acid foods, or by the action of intestinal flora, may degrade carrageenan into the lower molecular weight poligeenan."
Regarding poligeenan, it is necessary to understand that "poligeenan is produced from carrageenan subjected to high temperatures and acidity.
