soo annoying that it's so often added it to heavy cream. grrr. i see it in coconut milk too.
i know it's a thickener. i think it's plant-based, but that doesn't make me feel better.
thoughts? deleterious effects? how about guar gum?
o lord. here is an overwhelming article which admittedly i have not yet read in it's entirety. sometimes the head, it spins.. http://raypeat.com/articles/nutrition/carrageenan.shtml i merely googled - i know nothing about that guy.
and eden foods positive slant: http://www.edenfoods.com/articles/view.php?articles_id=82
i do avoid it, was hoping maybe i could relax. i used to drink lots of soymilk with it, but so many things have changed in my diet, i can hardly pinpoint carrageenan as a troublemaker.
just looking for more anecdotes, elaborations. actually would be nice if it were a non-issue.
