What we Do.

We produce high-quality carrageenan. TBK Carrageenan is a natural grade carrageenan mainly used to gel, thicken, bind, texturize, and suspend properties over a broad range of food products. TBK Carrageenan is obtained from the red seaweeds Kappaphycus cottonii and Denticulatum spinosum that are farmed in the shallow lagoons of the Philippine islands.
