Alginan sodný, also known as sodium alginate, is a natural polysaccharide derived from brown seaweed. It is commonly used as a thickening agent, stabilizer, and emulsifier in the food industry. This ingredient is a popular choice in molecular gastronomy due to its unique gelling properties when combined with calcium ions. Sodium alginate is a vegan-friendly ingredient and has no discernible taste or odor, making it a versatile ingredient in a wide range of food products. It is also used in the medical field as a binder in tablets and a thickening agent in wound dressings.
