WD Series


Ice Cream, Puddings and Non-Transparent Gellies

WD SERIES are natural grade carrageenan blends specially developed for water dessert such as ice creams, water jellies, puddings and other kinds of water base desserts.

Ice cream

Carrageenan controls the crystallization during production with the aim to have numerous small crystals, leading to a smooth and creamy sensation. It maintains the crystallization status quo during storage and distribution where freeze-thaw is key and it's used in order to prevent syneresis.

Water Jellies and Puddings
This is often used in combination with other gums in to order to exhibit a wide spectrum of textural properties and gel system is elastic and full bodied, forming a network with minimum syneresis. Advantages such as:
  1. Provides very good flavour release
  2. It's being thermoreversible
  3. Produces minimal syneresis
  4. It's cost effective

Use Level

  • Ice Cream : 0.02 – 0.05% by weight of final product
  • Water Jellies : 0.50 – 1.0% by weight of final product
