APPLICATIONS: 1-Food and other domestic uses Desserts, ice cream, cream, milkshakes, salad dressings, sweetened condensed milks, and sauces: gel to increase viscosity. Beer: clarifier to remove haze-causing proteins Toothpaste: stabilizer to prevent constituents separating Fruit Gushers: ingredient in the encapsulated gel Fire fighting foam: thickener to cause foam to become sticky Shampoo and cosmetic creams: thickener Biotechnology: gel to immobilize cells/enzymes Pharmaceuticals: used as an inactive excipient in pills/tablets Soy milk and other plant milks: used to thicken, in an attempt to emulate the consistency of whole milk Diet sodas: to enhance texture and suspend flavours Pet food,Personal lubricants,Vegetarian hot dogs 2-Medical uses A 2006 in vitro study and a 2007 mouse study at the National Cancer Institute in the United States suggested that carrageenans might function as a topical microbicide. A 1987 in vitro study in Spain revealed a broad spectrum antiviral activity of carrageenan.
