Sodium Alginate

Alginates are extracts derived from certain Brown Seaweeds (Kelp or Macrocystis). Kelp is commonly found in the northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and off the coast of California down through Chile. Alginic Acid exists naturally in the seaweed. Through the extraction and refining process alginic acid is converted to commercially functional Sodium Alginates. Sodium Alginates are used to produce heat-stable gels and to generate viscosity in a variety of fabricated foods, heat-stable fruit fillings, and cheese sauces.
