Studies on Use of Sodium Alginate as a Fat Replacer
Use of Sodium Alginate as a Fat Replacer
What is Sodium Alginate
Sodium alginate, a natural polymer polysaccharide extracted from deep-sea brown algae (kelp, macroalgae, etc.), has excellent thickening, stabilizing, water-holding, gelling, emulsifying and film-forming properties, and can be used in combination with a variety of colloids, which can effectively improve the quality of meat products and has important applications in the processing of meat products.
Use of Sodium Alginate
Sodium alginate is often used in the food industry as a thickening agent (for sauces, salad dressings, thickening fruit drinks, etc.), stabilizer (in ice cream), film-forming agent (for sandwich cakes, frozen fish, meat, etc. to prevent water penetration, candy anti-adhesive packaging, fruit preservation) and water-holding agent (for frozen products and dairy products frozen sweets), etc.
Sodium alginate, fat and water can be used for the production of fat replacer, and its addition to meat products has the following advantages.
Recipe of Sodium Alginate as Fat Replacer
Sodium Alginate Blends
Pouring sodium alginate blends into water, dissolve by heating, pour the liquid gel into mold and leave for at least 3-4 hours to form a thermal irreversible gel
Use with calcium
Steps as above
1. Calcium sulfate or calcium lactate.
2. The ratio of sodium alginate and calcium is usually 1:1 or 1:0.5. For example, 1% of alginate + 1% (or 0.5%) of calcium.
3. Also need to add chelating agent (such as sodium tripolyphosphate, sodium hexametaphosphate)
Application Case: High Temperature Low-Fat Sausage
Soybean isolated protein
White granulated sugar
