Sodium Alginate Low Viscosity

Your reliable sodium alginate producers, sodium alginate suppliers!

Sodium Alginate E401 is a natural polysaccharide product extracted from the cell wall of brown seaweed that grows in cold water regions. The natural function of alginate is to give flexibility to the seaweed, so it is common to find higher contents of alginate in species found in troubled waters. Sodium alginate was first studied in 1881 by English chemist ECC Stanford.

As one of the professional sodium alginate suppliers, exporters in China, Gino is dedicated to supplying superior alginate products from reliable alginate producers. Meanwhile, we can offer tailor-made solutions perfectly matched to your needs.

Sodium Alginate Properties

It provides a unique combination of properties including cold solubility, cold-setting gels, non-melting gels (heat/temperature independent) and freeze-thaw stable gels.

Temperature (gels and melts): not affected by temperature. Gel is heat stable up to 150 °C (302 °F) but prolonged heat treatment at low or high PH may destabilize the gel.

Texture: Thermo irreversible rigid and brittle gel in the presence of calcium. The higher the concentration of alginate and calcium, the harder the gel produced.

Appearance: clear and transparent.

Flavor release: as most hard set gels, poor flavor release.

Mouthfeel: lingering and sticky.

Freeze / Thaw stable: yes, in most applications.

Syneresis (weeping): yes, increases with gel strength.

Shearing: breaks gel.

Sodium Alginate Benefits

Sodium alginate is a non-digestible carbohydrate and the FDA intends to propose it in the list of dietary fibers. It has the benefits of lowering blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and other health effects.
