To establish the potential of fucoidan as a texture modifier for use in food product development; to identify local seaweeds that are a potential source of fucoidan; to develop a facile isolation of purified fucoidan; to characterize the rheology of fucooidan in aqueous solution and in model complex food systems; to assess the performance of fucoidan as a texture modifying additive in selected food products.
