Chemical Information
FooDB NameSodium alginate
DescriptionStabiliser, emulsifier, thickener, formulation aid [DFC] The chemical compound sodium alginate is the sodium salt of alginic acid. Sodium alginate is a gum, extracted from the cell walls of brown algae. As a flavorless gum, it is used by the foods industry to increase viscosity and as an emulsifier. As a food additive, sodium alginate is used especially in the production of gel-like foods. For example, bakers' "Chellies" are often gelled alginate "jam." [Wikipedia]
