Ammonium Alginate Market: Introduction:
Alginate is derived from the cell walls of algae as the sodium, ammonium or calcium salt of alginic acid. Ammonium alginate is the ammonium salt of alginic acid. Ammonium alginate is a white to yellowish brown filamentous, grainy, granular or powdered forms and slowly soluble in water, forming a viscous solution. The major sources for the manufacturing of ammonium alginate are species of Ascophyllum, Ecklonia, Durvillaea, Laminaria, Lessonia, Sargassum, Macrocystis and Turbinaria.
The ammonium alginate market demand among various industries is increasing owing to its increasing applications. In textiles and for manufacturing of paper ammonium alginate is used due to, it quick water absorption technology. Ammonium alginate is also used as thickening and gelling agents in food & beverage industry and commonly found in pie filling and gravy. Ammonium alginate has various applications in pharmaceuticals industry owing to better stabilizer and emulsifier. Furthermore, the ammonium alginate is used in manufacturing of welding rods and used to produce packaging material for food & beverages industry.
However, there are some health related issues associated with ammonium alginate such as, exposure to high concentration of ammonium alginate may cause bloating, nausea and diarrhea and can affect the gastrointestinal tract, mucus glands and respiratory system. Additionally, ammonium alginate is a less stable chemical compares to other derivatives of alginic acid.
