Sodium alginate

Sodium alginate (E401) - an organic chemical compound, sodium alginic acid. It is obtained from seaweed (brown algae) thrown to the shores of the Atlantic. It is colorless and tasteless. Sodium alginate is used as a thickening agent, gelling agent or stabilizer, it swells easily and binds water well. It inhibits the absorption of strontium. It has gelling properties, after adding cold water, it gets off like gelatin. Sodium alginate in conjunction with calcium chloride is used for spherulizing.

Sodium alginate is a natural decoction of seaweed, which at lower temperatures has gelling properties, so adding it to cold water will make it similar to gelatin. Alginate reacts with calcium chloride, which makes the gel structure more strong and hard.

Sodium alginate Sodium alginate (E401) is an organic chemical compound - sodium alginic acid. It is obtained from seaweed (algae kelp) thrown to the shores of the Atlantic. This substance is colorless and tasteless. Sodium alginate is used in the form of a thickener, a gelling agent, and a stabilizer. It easily swells, binds water well and also inhibits the absorption of strontium. It has gelling properties - after adding cold water it behaves like gelatin. In combination with calcium chloride, sodium alginate is used for spherical processing. Sodium alginate is a natural decree of marine algae. Reacting with calcium chloride forms a strong and hard gel structure.
