1. Quick Detail:
Sodium alginate is a kind brown or white powder, used in food
industry, as a thickner in bakery or meat industry.or instead the
animal fat in meat industry or emulsifieror gelling agent in sugar
or orther foods.
Sodium alginate as known as alginate salt ,white or light yellow
powder,solubie in water,insolubie in organic solvents,molecular
formula(C6H7NaO6) X..it is a kind of natural polysaccharide
cellulose,which has the stability,solubility viscosity and security
of the pharmaceutical preparatin,and is often used in food
industry,textile industry, pharmaceutical industry and dentisty.
A.Hydrophilic: soluble in water to form a viscous solution, mainly
used as a food additive.
B.High mobility: for the dyeing industry has good fluidity, higher
than other colloid
C.Gel: can be used to make jelly, bionic food ,etc.
D.Thickening: widely used in food, beverage, daily chemical and other
E.Stability: as a relatively good stabilizer, thickener, emulsifier
is widely used in cold food industry
F.Health functions:as a kind of natural cellulose, sodium alginate
with lower blood pressure, biood fat, lower cholesterol, prevent
fatty liver; hinder the absorption of radioactive elements; help to
rid the body of heavy metals; increase the felling of fullness;
accelerate gastrointestinal peristalsis, prevent constipation,
favorable to lose weight.

E401 Sodium Alginate Function
In the food industry, Sodium Alginate has the functions of
stabilization, hydration, thickening and emulsification.
In the pharmaceutical industry, it can be used as dental impression
material, ointment, tablets and their preparation, and
hemostat.Sodium Alginate also can be used in resin coating, rubber
cream agent, water treatment and so on.
E401 Sodium Alginate Application
In Foods,Alginate has an excellent functionality as a thickening agent,
gelling agent, emulsifier, stabilizer, texture-improver (for
noodles), to improve the quality of food. Nowadays, based on unique
and excellent properties alginate is applied to numerous kinds of
food, such as ice cream, jelly, lactic drinks, dressings, instant
noodle, beer, et cetera .Safety of alginate for food applications
is certified by FAO/WHO, as one of the safest food additives.
