Sodium Alginate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Sodium alginate is basically derived from brown seaweed. It is extracted, particularly from the cell wall of brown algae. Some names by which sodium alginate is known by include sodium salt, natriumglucuronat, and alginic acid monosodium salt.  The molecular weight of sodium alginate is about 216.12 g/mol. 

It is widely utilised as a stabilizer in food products such as ice cream, yoghurt, cream, and even cheese. It acts as a thickener as well as an emulsifier for salads, puddings, jams, tomato juice, and even for the canned products. It is also known as a hydration agent for noodles, bread, as well as frozen products. Sodium alginate forms resilient gels in the presence of calcium and acid mediums. It is also known to be a cold gelling agent that needs no heat. It is most widely utilised with calcium lactate or calcium chloride in the spherification process. Sodium alginate is also known as a natural amylose carbohydrate distilled from alga. It is generally applied to food, medicine, textile, printing, and also for dyeing, paper-making, and natural chemicals.
