Ticagel® 822 is a specialized carrageenan designed to combine the thickening and soft gelling characteristics of this hydrocolloid. Ticagel 822 requires the presence of milk proteins to exhibit optimum functionality. It works equally well in both high solids systems like variegates and sauces and low solids systems like custards and flan.
