Sodium Alginate



Sodium Alginate is a compound derived from seaweed that is used as a food emulsifier (and it can thicken without using heat!). This ingredient is used to congeal jams, sauces, dressings, pie filling, and to harden candy. Sodium Alginate is also the counterpart of Calcium Chloride; both ingredients are a necessity when doing spherification.
