Furcelleran is present in several food products such as jam, pudding, jelly frosting, diabetic products, powdered laxatives, ice cream, toothpaste, candies, dressing, cheese and desserts. Furcellaran is composed of 3,6-anhydro-D-galactose (30-33%), D-galactose (46-53%) and sulfated portions of both sugars (16-20%). It is necessary to mention the use of furcelleran in the food item as people could be could be allergic to the red seaweed from which the food additive is extracted.
