After reviewing available research on carrageenan safety, particularly a new study of piglets that is representative of human infants consuming carrageenan in infant formula, JECFA concluded that "the use of carrageenan in infant formula or formula for special medical purposes at concentrations up to 1000 mg/L is not of concern."
For this reason, natural polyamines such as chitosan and synthetic ones such as polyethylenimines were used to improve the carrageenan gels' thermal stabilities [17].
Carrageenans are a family of sulphated linear polysaccharides consisting of (1 [right arrow] 3)-linked [beta]-galactose and (1 [right arrow] 4)-linked [alpha]-D-galactose units, which are variously substituted and modified to the 3,6-anhydro derivative, depending on the source and extraction conditions [8].
"Traditionally, carrageenan has played an important role in the formulation of dairy puddings, custards and vlas, yet it is viewed by consumers in some European countries as an unacceptable ingredient.
