So, what is alginate de calcium?

Calcium alginate is a natural food ingredient derived from brown seaweed. It is commonly used as a gelling agent and thickener in the food industry. Calcium alginate forms a gel when it comes into contact with calcium ions, which makes it useful in products such as jelly candies, fruit fillings, and ice cream. It is also used as a coating for foods like cheese and sausages to improve their texture and extend their shelf life. Due to its natural origin and versatility, calcium alginate is a popular choice for food manufacturers seeking to create high-quality, stable products with a clean label.
