Alginates are naturally occurring, indigestible polysaccharides commonly produced by and refined from various genera of brown algae. It has different functional properties such as thickening agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer. Sodium alginate is the most common salt of alginate used in the food processing industry. They are used as emulsifiers in food items such as peanut butter, salad dressings, frozen desserts, and margarine, etc. Increasing demand from bakery and confectionery in the United States is anticipated to drive the growth of the food-grade alginate market over the forecast period. Moreover, Alginate-based edible coatings and films will provide significant opportunities to manufacturers for packaging in the near future.This growth is primarily driven by Growing Demand for Food Grade Alginate in Food Industry Owing To Its Functional Properties Such As Thickening Agent, Gelling Agent, and Stabilizer and Cost Efficiency and Easy Availability of Alginate.
Globally, a noticeable market trend is evident Growing Demand for Organic, Plant-Based, Gluten-Free, and Kosher Sodium Alginate. Major Vendors, such as Cargill Inc. (United States), Dupont Inc. (United States), SNP Inc. (United States), Cape Crystal Brands (United States), EnvironMolds LLC (United States), KIMICA Corporation (Japan), Health Leads UK Ltd. (United Kingdom), J.
