Seaweed Flour

Recommended Posts

I was going to buy a box of frozen chicken breasts the other day when I noticed that it had flavor listed as an ingredient. I wrote the company and asked. This is the answer I received:

There is no hydrolyzed vegetable protein in this formulation. The component

for "flavor" is seaweed flour (carrageen) and smoke flavor.

So what is seaweed flour (carrageen)? I know it's made from seaweed, but beyond that, I don't know whether I can eat it. What about smoke flavor? Do I need to write back for clarification (in case they can do that) or does anyone know? I do find it handy to have the chicken breasts on hand.

Seaweed flour (carrageen) is used as a thickener. Not sure about the chicken but that ingredient is safe. My thing is to always call - better be safe than sorry.
