Typical applications

More commonly known under the E number "E403", ammonium alginate is a compound between ammonium acid and alginic acid.

Alginic acid is a naturally present, edible polysaccharide obtained from brown algae. Together with the chemical additive ammonium acid, they produce ammonium alginate. The final product has great heat resistant, fat soluble properties and the ability to bind water.

In the food industry, ammonium alginate is mostly used as a gelling, thickening and coating medium. In combination with calcium ions, E403 forms gels that are stable to cooking and freezing. For this reason, its use as a coating agent to protect food from drying out and to ensure stability during freezing and defrosting is very popular.

This product is available in the following forms: Ammonium Alginate powder.
