So, what is alginic acid?

Alginic acid is a natural polymer derived from brown seaweed that has a wide range of applications in the food industry. It is commonly used as a thickener, gelling agent, and stabilizer in various food products such as dairy, bakery, and confectionery items. Alginic acid is highly soluble in water and forms a viscous solution that can be easily manipulated to achieve different textures and consistencies. Moreover, it has unique properties that make it suitable for applications such as encapsulation and controlled release of bioactive compounds. With its versatility and natural origin, alginic acid is an essential ingredient for many food manufacturers looking to enhance the quality and functionality of their products.
