Chemical Properties

Soluble in water.


It is a hematologic agent, drug that acts on blood and blood-forming organs and those that affect the hemostatic system. sodium alginate has been used in warp sizing, packing and printing. In printing, it is an ideal kind of material with wide applications in the cotton, wool, silk and synthetic fiber. Sodium alginate is widely used in food industry such as it is the main material of seaweed, synthetic grape and synthetic cherry, it is taken as a stabilizer of ice cream and ice cream bar because of its dense organization and slow solution speed. It is also the main material of the dainty cold powder and jelly, As a stabilizer of cake (such as cookies, bread, fine dried noodle, chocolates) and a polish of bread, sodium alginate can keep the cookies sweet-smelling and avoid falling to pieces, and make the noodle smooth and reduce breaking ratio of noodle and fragmentation of bread.
