Product Description

Sodium Alginate is also called Algimic acid and it has a variety of uses in the food, pharmaceutical and textile printing industries. It is also used in the making of dental impression material as its means of gelling. Sodium Alginate is safe as an ingredient in manufactured foods.

It is a white or yellowish powder, is almost tasteless and odorless and is extracted from the cell wall of brown algae, where through binding with water forms a viscous gum and is used 2 increase viscosity and also as an emulsifier.

Applications

It is widely used in food, pharmaceutical and textile printing industry for its stability, thickening and emulsibility, hydratability and gel properties.

Pharmaceutical Grade

Sodium Alginate is used as an ingredient in various pharmaceutical preparations, where it combines with bicarbonate to inhibit reflux. It is also used as an impression-making material in dentistry, prosthetics, lifecasting and for creating positives for small-scale casting.

Sodium Alginate is widely used in pharmaceutical preparation, tissue engineering, clinical treatment, cell culture and food processing fields because of its exclusive physicochemical properties and favorable biocompatibility. It is used as thickening agent, suspending agent and disintegrating agent. It also can be used as the microencapsulated materials and the cold resistant agent for cells. Further more, it can lower blood sugar, antioxidant and increases immunological competence.

In recent years, with the development of biological medical material and the new pharmaceutical dosage form, as a kind of bioadhesive polymer and PH sensitivity of the gel material, the application research of Sodium Alginate is increasing. In the conventional preparation, sustained release microcapsules or mini-pills are made availing of its polyelectrolyte character, gel matrix tablets are made availing of its gel character and targeted intestinal absorption tablet disintegrant is made availing of its PH sensitivity.

It can also be used as thickening agent of the topical ointment. The viscosity of the oral tablet is increased if added Sodium Alginate into it. The gel barrier effect comes into being and prolong the drug release time, reduce adverse reactions. Long acting Isosorbide Dinitrate tablet is made with the Sodium Alginate as base material. Long term effect can also be caused if added Sodium Alginate into antibiotic, insulin and hormone drugs solution.

Sodium Alginate molecule contains free carboxyl and oxdydryl than can form gel with many metal ions. The mini-pills we made have PH sensitivity, suitable grain size that can prevent burst and oral toxicity. Sodium Alginate gel is so powerful bio-adhesive that it can be used in local wound dressing, drug delivery system for nasal cavity and ocular region, oral pellicles and chewable tablet. Sodium Alginate has the characteristic of blood compatibility, degradation and elimination inside the body. it is also a good carrier material for targeting drugs.

Packaging

5,10,20,25 kg cartons, 25 kg fibre drum and carton for bulk &250 and 500 gm polycontainers for retail

Food Grade

Stabiliser: It is used as a stabilizer inIce creamsas it can control the formation of ice crystals and improve the taste of ice cream. It can also stabilize mixed beverages like syrup ice cream, iced sherbet, frozen milk etc. Its stable function can also prevent the adhesion between foods and packing material in dairy products such as refined cheese, whipped cream, dry cheese, etc. Sodium Alginate can also prevent icing sugar pastry from cracking.

Thickener and Emulsifier: It can enhance stability and reduce fluid exudation and is used as a thickener for salad sauce, pudding, jam, ketchup and canned products.

Hydratability: Sodium Alginate can improve bonding inside the product, making them with high tensile strength, curvature, reducing the end breakage rate and is extensively used in noodles, silk noodles and rice flour. It is alsogood for use with low gluten flour, as the effect is more apparent. When added to bread and cakes, the uniformity and water retention ability of internal organizations of these products will be improved and will prolong the storage time. When added in frozen dessert products, Sodium Alginate can provide a protective shield of heat fusion, prevent fragrance loss and improve the melting point.

Gel properties: Various gel food can be made by Sodium Alginate with good colloid form yet without drainage of shrinkage, suitable for frozen food and man-made imitation food. It can also be used to cover fruit, meat, poultry and aquatic products as protective layers, to protect from air and extend the storage time. It can be as self-solidification forming agent such as sugarcoating of bread, stuffed filling, cover layer of dessert , canned food, etc. In high temperature, freezing and acidic media can still maintain the original shape. It can also be made into flexible, non-stick tooth and transparent crystal candy instead of Agar Agar.

Sodium Alginate also has health benefits and is an indispensable dietary fiber for human body with unique nutrition. Combined with organic matter, it can decrease serum and cholesterol in liver, inhibit the rise in total fat and fatty acid concentration. Besides, it can also improve the digestion and absorption of nutrient; at the same time inhibit the absorption of harmful elements such as radioactive strontium, cadmium, etc. Long-term consumption of health food with Sodium Alginate will be helpful to treat hypertension, coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes and intestinal tract diseases etc.
