Global Propylene Glycol Alginate Market: Overview
With globalisation, there has been extensive research and development among the manufacturers towards development of speciality ingredients. Alginate is one such ingredient whose demand has escalated over a period of time. Alginate is obtained from brown algae comprehends dietary properties. Many variants of alginate have been introduced in the market subjected to its increase demand. Propylene glycol alginate is chemical combination of alginic acid and propylene oxide. Principally, propylene glycol alginate is derivative of alginic acid ester, which is obtained from kelp plant. The product obtained is milled and dried and hence, characterised as naturally obtained ingredient. Propylene glycol alginate has widespread application such as thickening agent used in ice creams, salad dressing, and foam stabiliser especially used in brewery industries and widely used as food preservatives. Propylene glycol alginate is also used as an ingredient in chewing gums and few condiments.
Global Propylene Glycol Alginate Market: Drivers and Restraints
With evolution of new consumption habits among consumers, manufacturers are diversifying their product offerings.
