Calcium Alginate Production Cost Reports

Food and Beverages

Calcium alginate is a water-insoluble, gelatinous, and cream-coloured substance. It can be made through the addition of aqueous calcium chloride to the aqueous sodium alginate. Calcium alginate is also utilised for the entrapment of enzymes and forming artificial seeds in plant tissue culture.

Any salt of alginic acid is referred to as alginate, but it can also apply to the derivatives of alginic acid and alginic acid itself. In some publications, the term algin is uitlised extensively instead of alginate. Alginate is found in the cell walls of brown algae as the calcium, magnesium, and sodium salts of the alginic acid. In order to extract the alginate, the seaweed is broken into pieces and then stirred with a hot solution of an alkali, generally sodium carbonate. Over a period of about 2 hours, the alginate dissolves as sodium alginate to give a very thick slurry. The sodium alginate, thus, derived is converted to calcium alginate through the addition of a calcium salt.

The uses of calcium alginate include plant tissue culture to make insoluble artificial seeds for immobilising enzymes by entrapment, to make an edible substance, to incorporate into wound dressings alginate dressings as a haemostatic, and to sustain drug delivery system.
