    A review on the chemistry, physico-chemistry and some gel characteristics of major phycocolloids is presented. These concern mainly agar, gelling carrageenans from red seaweeds, alginate from brown seaweeds and ulvans from green seaweeds. Based on the available data, future research areas are proposed to better define the relationships between the different structural levels of these polysaccharides and their use as texturing agents.
