Previously, it was mostly consumed in Asia countries. Several hydrocolloids made from seaweed are also employed to boost the stability and thickness of food items. Additionally, it is used to create gels and films that are water-soluble. The most popular macro algal extracts are alginate, agar, and carrageenan. They are employed in a variety of culinary items, including ice cream, jam, fruit juice, bakery goods, and others, as gelling, stabilizing, emulsifying, and thickening agents.
