Most Carrageenan is extracted from Kappaphycus alvarezii and Eucheuma denticulatum in North America. Chondrus crispus is largely harvested in the Maritime Provinces of Canada with smaller quantities collected along the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts in the United States. The difference in volume is due not so much to lack of abundance as to differences in the local economies. The Carrageenan from C. crispus, which comprises a mixture of kappa- and lambda-Carrageenan, is much valued as the preferred type for applications such as chocolate milk stabilization.

North America imports Carrageenan majorly from China, Philippines and Indonesia due to the easy availability of the Sea weed. In Canada, the annual production of Carrageenan was approximately 1.7% of the total world production. Due to the wide applications of Carrageenan in dairy, meat and pet foods, the US has become a sizeable market for Carrageenan and its price has increased rapidly in the last 5 years. The major companies for manufacturing Carrageenan in the US are Ingredients Solutions Inc, FMC Biopolymer and Cargill Carrageenan Company. In North America, the demand for Carrageenan has decreased as consumers have shifted to alternatives like SRC Grade food and RC Gel pressed products. The varied applications that Carrageenan has found in food products, personal care and pharmaceuticals is still a major driving factor for the Carrageenan Market.
