The effect of low water activity solvents on the rheological behavior and conformational transition of κ-carrageenan was studied. While carrageenan formed a swollen gel with water, it formed only a weakly flocculated network of partially hydrated particles with glycerol. Upon melting and recooling, all samples formed solid gels.
