My first canister of kappa carrageenan performed perfectly. I just opened my second canister and used the amount required in my recipe but this time it wouldn't "set up" properly. I noticed too that the powder itself looked different. The powder in my first canister was a dull off-white color with a distinct "ocean" aroma. The powder in the new batch is bright crystalline white with very little scent. This leads me to believe that perhaps iota carrageenan was packaged in the kappa carrageenan canister??? I'm not sure what the problem is exactly, but as a chef, I need products that perform consistently. I won't risk purchasing from this company again.
