So, what is alginato sódico?

Sodium alginate, or "alginato sódico" in Spanish, is a natural polysaccharide extracted from brown seaweed that has unique thickening and gelling properties. It is commonly used in the food industry as a stabilizer, thickener, and emulsifier, especially in dairy products such as ice cream and cheese. Sodium alginate is also widely used in molecular gastronomy, where it can be used to create edible spheres and other visually appealing textures. As a dietary fiber, it can aid in digestion and improve gut health. Its versatility, natural origin, and health benefits make it a popular choice in the food industry.
