Sodium Alginate, E401, CAS no.9005-38-3, food thickener, manufacturing process from brown seaweeds. Sodium alginates are soluble in both hot and cold water and are available in a variety of viscosity ranges with various gelling properties. Sodium Alginate solutions are converted, in the presence of calcium ions (calcium chloride or other soluble calcium salt), to Calcium Alginate, the heat-stable gelled form. Sodium alginate is available in paper grade, pharmaceutical grade, textile grade, tech grade, food grade, and cosmetic grade. Function and uses: Sodium alginate is widely used as a stabilizer or as an emulsifier, or both, in the textile printing industry. Sodium Alginates are also used in food products, ice-creams and dairy products. As a professional Sodium Alginate supplier supplier, we distribute Sodium Alginate: Super low viscosity sodium alginate (10-100cps), Low viscosity sodium alginate (100-200cps), Middle viscosity sodium alginate (200-500 cps), High viscosity sodium alginate (500-1000 cps), Super high viscosity sodium alginate (above 1000 cps).

Upstream: Prices of upstream brown algae are stable and supply is stable. Production capacity of the Sodium Alginate manufacturers didn’t change much.
Downstream: Downstream demand is pretty stable.
Forecast: Considering the current market trend, price of Sodium Alginate will be stable in the coming months.
Food Grade: Sodium Alginate is widely used as thickener and texture stabilizer in food and beverage industries. food grade Sodium Alginate is available as fine powder(>98% purity).
Textile Grade: Sodium Alginate is used in starching, packing and printing, mainly in printing. Sodium Alginate as a printing agent, it not only affects the dyeing reaction but also makes the product outline clear, color bright, feeling smooth.
Yes. Sodium Alginate is gluten free and widely used in gluten free food to provide stronger texture to salad dressing and fast food.
Sodium Alginate is the sodium salt of Alginic acid. As a plant derived ingredients, Alginates, including Sodium Alginate, calcium Alginate and Propylene Glycol Alginate, are general recognized as halal. We will still audit another 2 key points to make sure that our Sodium Alginate is 100% halal: Are there any pig products used in manufacturing process of this ingredient? Does the ingredient contain Alcohol (impure) or other haraam ingredients?
Sodium Alginate is the sodium salt of Alginic acid. As a plant derived ingredients, Sodium Alginate is general recognized as Kosher classified as Parve. Moreover, Sodium Alginate is also regulated as Kosher for Passover.
- 5.1. Storage: Kept in dry, cool, and shaded place with original packaging, avoid moisture, store at room temperature.
- 5.2. Handling precaution: Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust.
No significant side effects reported.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Calcium Alginate is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
Sodium Alginate is a calcium salt of Alginic acid widely used as thickener in food and beverage industries. As a thickener, Sodium Alginate can be used in a wide variety of industries including: food production, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, agriculture/animal feed, and various other industries.
