Alginic acid, also called algin or alginate, is an anionic polysaccharide
distributed widely in the cell walls of brown algae, where through binding with
water it forms a viscous gum. It is also a significant component of the
biofilms produced by the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the major pathogen
in cystic fibrosis, that confer it a high resistance to antibiotics and killing
by macrophages. Its colour ranges from white to yellowish-brown. It is sold in
filamentous, granular or powdered forms.


Alginate absorbs water quickly, which makes it useful as an additive in
dehydrated products such as slimming aids, and in the manufacture of paper and
textiles. It is also used for waterproofing and fireproofing fabrics, in the
food industry as a thickening agent for drinks, ice cream and cosmetics, and as
a gelling agent for jellies;

Alginate is used as an ingredient in various pharmaceutical preparations, such
as Gaviscon, in which it combines with bicarbonate to inhibit reflux. Sodium
alginate is used as an impression-making material in dentistry, prosthetics,
lifecasting and for creating positives for small-scale casting.
