Effect of solvent quality on the behavior of κ-carrageenan

Srividya Ramakrishnan, Robert K. Prud'homme

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A study was conducted to examine the gelation of κ-carrageenan in mixed solvents. Low water activity solvents were used in processed foods such as candies in order to prevent loss of water through evaporation. The mechanical properties were determined through rheology and following the conformation transition with optical rotary dispersion (ORD).
