Sodium Alginate, E401, CAS no.9005-38-3, food thickener, manufacturing process from brown seaweeds. Sodium alginates are soluble in both hot and cold water and are available in a variety of viscosity ranges with various gelling properties. Sodium Alginate solutions are converted, in the presence of calcium ions (calcium chloride or other soluble calcium salt), to Calcium Alginate, the heat-stable gelled form. Sodium alginate is available in paper grade, pharmaceutical grade, textile grade, tech grade, food grade, and cosmetic grade. Function and uses: Sodium alginate is widely used as a stabilizer or as an emulsifier, or both, in the textile printing industry. Sodium Alginates are also used in food products, ice-creams and dairy products. As a professional Sodium Alginate supplier supplier, we distribute Sodium Alginate: Super low viscosity sodium alginate (10-100cps), Low viscosity sodium alginate (100-200cps), Middle viscosity sodium alginate (200-500 cps), High viscosity sodium alginate (500-1000 cps), Super high viscosity sodium alginate (above 1000 cps).
