• gels
  • Update: The Frog Blog has nice posts with pictures showing how Jay Veregge and Joel Robuchon utilize alginate gels. (khymos.org)
  • CaAlg2 + 2NaCl The biocompatibility of alginate gels has been studied extensively and their safety for consumption is well established. (wikipedia.org)
  • polymers
  • These bioinks are often adopted from existing hydrogel biomaterials and derived from natural polymers such as gelatins, alginates, fibrin, chitosan, and hyaluronic acids that are sensitive to their processing conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cross-linking polymers - alginate worms" (PDF). (wikipedia.org)
  • Kelp
  • The study, published in Food Chemistry ​, shows that alginate from sea kelp can suppress the digestion of fat in the gut - opening up 'exciting possibilities' for making everyday foods healthier. (nutraingredients.com)
  • Commercial varieties of alginate are extracted from seaweed, including the giant kelp Macrocystis pyrifera, Ascophyllum nodosum, and various types of Laminaria. (wikipedia.org)
  • widely
  • Important considerations in printability include: Uniformity in filament diameter Angles at the interaction of filaments "Bleeding" of filaments together at intersects Maintenance of shape fidelity after printing but before cross-linking Printing pressure and nozzle diameter Alginate is a naturally derived biopolymer from the cell wall of brown algae that has been widely used as a biomaterial. (wikipedia.org)
  • textile
  • Globally, the alginates & derivatives market is driven by growing demand for sodium alginate, which is used in various industrial applications such as textile, paper, ceramics, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, along with the food & beverage industry. (marketsandmarkets.com)
  • enzyme
  • In enzymology, an alginate synthase (EC 2.4.1.33) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction GDP-D-mannuronate + (alginate)n ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } GDP + (alginate)n+1 Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are GDP-D-mannuronate and (alginate)n, whereas its two products are GDP and (alginate)n+1. (wikipedia.org)
  • The systematic name of this enzyme class is GDP-D-mannuronate:alginate D-mannuronyltransferase. (wikipedia.org)
  • thickeners
  • Alginates are used as thickeners in fat substitutes, pet food, stuffed olives, onion rings, low fat sauces and spreads, and pie fillings. (sci-toys.com)
  • citation needed] Alginates do not react with these dyes and wash out easily, unlike starch-based thickeners. (wikipedia.org)
  • paste
  • The video shows how a red beet paste mixed with alginate solidifies when dripped into a solution of calcium lactate (this solution is normally clear, the yellow colour comes from extensive use). (khymos.org)
  • Sodium alginate is used to thicken the dye to a paste consistency for printing and hand painting. (misterart.com)
  • Absorption
  • The aim of this project is to measure the effect of alginate on iron absorption from ferrous gluconate and assess the potential modulating effect of calcium on iron absorption in the presence and absence of alginate. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Study to Measure the Absorption of Iron From Ferrous Gluconate Incorporated Into Alginate Beads. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Absorption will be assessed in response to four test meals as follows: unprotected ferrous gluconate, iron gluconate incorporated into alginate beads,ferrous gluconate incorporated into alginate beads given with calcium, and unprotected ferrous gluconate given with calcium. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The absorption of Biatain Alginate Ag and the gel formation which locks exudate inside the gel prevent leakage that can cause maceration of the surrounding skin. (coloplast.co.uk)
  • species
  • Alginates from different species of brown seaweed often have variations in their chemical structure, resulting in different physical properties. (wikipedia.org)
  • readily
  • some may readily give a cream/white alginate, while others are difficult to gel, and are best used for technical applications where color does not matter. (wikipedia.org)
  • jelly
  • After insertion of the cannula and collection of baseline blood sample a single dose of approximately 20mg of iron as ferrous gluconate incorporated into alginate beads (approximately 22.2g)and added to cola jelly (200ml) will be given to the volunteer together with 3 placebo capsules (each containing 50mg of dextrose)and cola drink (200ml). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • After removing the jelly from the alginate bath, calcium would not continue to diffuse into the center of the sphere, therefore would not create a gel center. (wikipedia.org)
  • units
  • 2NaAlg + CaCl2 Because it is a single-strand polymer, alginate can be depolymerized (broken into smaller units) by a variety of chemical reactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Product
  • The harvest is also used for the production of alginates, with China producing up to ten thousand tons of the product each year. (wikipedia.org)
