After reading this post, I had a look at what's in my fridge to see if anything contains carrageenan.
One item that came up with it as an ingredient was 'Ensure'. I normally water down a couple of them and drink them over the course of the day when things aren't looking too good. Obviously, I'm now having second thoughts about drinking Ensure.
