In particular, it presents obvious effect over flour containing relatively low percentage of gluten. If sodium alginate is increased in bread, pastry and suchlike products, the evenness of products inner tissue and its reserve period will be greatly ameliorated. For frozen sweet foods, it can form a protective layer for thermofusion, avoid aroma loss and elevate melting point.
Sodium alginate can be added into various gelated foods in hopes of keeping favorable colloid form, avoiding liquid seeping and shrinkage. It is particularly suitable for production of frozen foods and man-made iminating foods.
