Product Description

Funori is a natural polysaccharide extracted from the red alga Gloiopeltisfurcata, coming from
Japan. Like other natural products, Funori is a mixture of substances, mainly funorans, whose
percentages may vary depending on the type of seaweed used, on the method of extraction and
on seasonal factors too.

Funoran is the polymer obtained byb-D-galactose-6-sulfate and 3,6-anhydro-a-L-galactose, which
are the same units present in agar-agar, but so much more sulphatedin Funori that they lose the
ability to give rigid gel. Certainly, funorans maintain a certain thickener capacity, which however
manifests itself at concentrations higher than those of agar-agar.
