Use this guide to avoid carrageenan in organic food. (Watch our video on how to use the guide.) Please note, since carrageen is only used in certain food categories, we’ve only reviewed organic products that commonly contain carrageenan.

Search by brand or product category using the search bar at the top right. And use the column at the right to pressure companies to join other brands that have reformulated based on mounting consumer concern.

Formulations can change without notice, so always carefully review ingredient labels—and remember that those labels don’t always tell the entire story of how your food was processed. If you’re extremely allergic or sensitive, it’s always best to check with the companies in question. We recommend verifying any website info with a phone call. Brand websites, as well as services like Instacart or Peapod, may not be up to date.
