2. Homemade Popping Boba Preparation

2.1 Inner Core Pulp Preparation

2.2 Outer Shell Solution Preparation

3. Steps to Making Popping Boba

Steps to Making Popping Boba
  1. Pour the prepared inner core pulp into the pouring equipment, adjust the size of the pouring outlet and drop it evenly into the container with the outer shell solution.
  2. Let them stand for 3-5s, then you can take them out after the outer shell is solidified.
  3. Rinse with clean water for storage or direct consumption.
  4. For industrial production, pasteurization can be added.

If you want to get a more tough skin, the finished popping beads can be poured into a 3-5% calcium chloride solution for rapid calcification and gelation.

To prevent the surface from becoming astringent, a proper cleaning process can be carried out with water.

4. Precautions

1. Selection of Sodium Alginate:

Viscosity: 300-500cps, recommended dosage: 1%

Viscosity: 500-700cps, recommended dosage: 0.7-1%

 2. The thickness of Outer Shell

The concentration of sodium alginate and the length of molding time is the main factor in determining the thickness of the wall material.

Simply put, the higher the concentration of sodium alginate solution, the longer the time, the thicker the shell will be.

5. Conclusion
