sodium alginate

Sodium alginate is a product of alginic acid, which is used in the food industry. This sodium salt is extracted as a gum from the cell wall of the algae. It has many uses in a range of industries. Because it can absorb large amounts of water, up to 300 times its weight.Features The compound is a chemical with the chemical formula of NaC6H7O6. As a sodium, salt of the alginic acid sodium alginate is a solid that is stable when at room temperature. Its pH ranges from 5.5 to 8.5. Solubility varies from 3 to 10 percent. Sodium alginate is combustible at high enough temperatures, with such starters as sparks of flame or open flame. Electrical shock however does not cause this compound to combust. Other than fire, the compound must be kept away from such things as acids, oxidizing agents and alkalis. Uses Sodium alginate is added to milk products, cheese products, fat spreads, dried vegetables, processed fruit, canned vegetables, breakfast cereals, starch-based products, fish products, and more. The chemical is also used as a food additive as a thickener, stabilizer, emulsifier and bulking agent. It is typically found in gel-like substances. This product is also added to dehydrated products because of its ability to quickly absorb water. A powdered version of sodium alginate is used to create dental impressions. When mixed with water, the resulting material is stretchable but will also hold its form. This gum is packed into a dental tray and then is bitten into. Molds of the teeth are then made from the impression. The alginate will form a protective coating around the walls of the esophagus and stomach. This protective coating gets rid of the discomfort of having too much acid in the stomach. So Sodium alginate is used in a type of indigestion tablet. Some indigestion tablets will contain alginates and antacids. This chemical helps mobilize and absorb the heavy metal and get it out of the body. As result of it, sodium alginate is used as a chelator for pulling radioactive heavy metals from the body. Chelation can be done slowly or quickly. Fast chelation can cause severe reactions in the body. Safety Inhalation of sodium alginate may cause labored respiration and in serious cases may stop breathing altogether. Ingestion may cause vomiting, diarrhea or nausea (in serious cases it can cause intestinal blockage). Contact with eyes or skin may cause irritation.
