The active ingredient in Britewort is High Potency Kappa Carrageenan which is derived from seaweed.
Carrageenan in solution is negatively charged, owing to the sulphate groups along the polysaccharide backbone. It is these charged sites which interact with wort proteins.
Britewort tablets should be added to the kettle ten to fifteen minutes prior to the end of the boil.
The addition time reflects the length of time required to dissolve and disperse the carrageenan into the wort.
If Britewort tablets are added early in the boil, then degradation of the polymer may occur and product efficiency is lost.
