Sodium Alginate Gel

The gel forms by chemical reaction, the calcium displaces the sodium from the alginate, holds the long alginate molecules together and a gel is the result. No heat is required and the gels do not melt when heated. This is in contrast to the agar gels where the water must be heated to about 80°C to dissolve the agar and the gel forms when cooled below about 40°C.
