Alginate is an anionic polymer that occurs naturally in brown algae (Phaeophyceae), normally present on the cell walls of these organisms.
Alginate is a structural element designated to be the seaweed’s main skeletal compound, similarly to the cellulose function in terrestrial plants. Thanks to the gel located in the cell walls and intercellular matrix conferring the mechanical strength and flexibility, alginate are able withstand the force of the water in which the seaweed grows.
Moreover, this function is reflected in the compositional difference of alginates in different seaweeds. Industrial applications of alginate are linked to the gelation, viscosity, and stabilizer properties that alginate attributes to the solutions and products.
The alginate shell is a special combination of hydrocolloids, proteins and seaweed fibers. Most often it is used for stuffing in a co-extrusion line.
