So, what is natriumalginaat?

Natriumalginaat, also known as sodium alginate, is a natural thickener and gelling agent derived from brown seaweed. It is a white or yellowish powder that dissolves in water and forms a viscous solution. Natriumalginaat is commonly used in the food industry to create gel-like textures, stabilize emulsions, and improve the texture of various foods such as ice cream, yogurt, and salad dressings. It is also used in molecular gastronomy to create unique textures and shapes, such as edible spheres and noodles. Natriumalginaat is considered safe for consumption and is widely used in food production around the world.
