I bought this on my doctor's recommendation for reflux. He said that American-manufactured Gaviscon no longer contained alginate, and gave me a sample of alginate capsules, which he said I could buy from a compounding pharmacy at about 50 cents a capsule. He also said I could get the alginate powder and fill my own for a fraction of the cost. It is true, and this works as well as can be expected. I recommend at least trying this product if you have reflux. I also bought the capsule filling equipment so the job is very easy.

The price of Alginates seems to have gone up, so make sure to comparison shop. I trust WillPowder for all my gastronomic chemicals. Good brand, good containers, good chemicals. Recommended.

I can't find a review of this product which has been made recently at all, and I saw a bunch of other bad reviews on his other products, so I figured I should contribute my experience.

I've never worked with sodium alginate before, so I don't know if it is me or not, but even following other recipes (I've attempted 5 so far), and measuring out all of the weights (I even used two different scales, just in case), there is not "no discernible flavor"- there is a very Strong, omnipresent chemical flavor to this alginate, and it ruins virtually every dish I've tried to make so far.

Not sure if they changed suppliers or extraction methods or what, but I would not recommend this to anyone.

I will try ordering from a different supplier, and see whether or not it's just the quality of this one.

I use this for non-cooking purposes: as something that mixed with water into a gel helps soothe reflux and it works better than the various herbs or medicines I've tried. Also have read that it may chelate heavy metals but have no knowledge of that besides seeing it mentioned. For

I couldn't find a way to dissolve this stuff. Called the company, but the guy I talked to was rude and didn't even try to help.

I have been using this as a reflux treatment for 2 years - eliminates all symptoms. It doesn't dissolve in water. You have to use a blender.

1 teaspoon of Sodium Alginate
1 teaspoon of Calcium Carbonate
1 cup of water

Put in blender at high speed for several minutes. I usually make 4 or 5 cups at a time (fill the blender). This will make a white goop. It will also take a lot of dish soap for the cleanup.
Store in a Tupperware container. It doesn’t need refrigeration but I like it better when it is cold. It doesn’t have any flavor to speak of.

Take 1 to 3 tablespoons whenever symptoms are felt. This will often eliminate any symptoms for several hours. Sometime I sometimes have to take it more often. If there are symptoms at night, you can also take it just before bed or during the night. One cup usually lasts me a full day and is equivalent to about 2 tums – but way more effective. I have been taking this remedy for more than two years and the only side effect I can report is that it may make one rather regular. In any case I feel that using this mixture is much more preferable to taking Prilosec or Zantec.

I decided to try this for advanced reflux with chronic throat clearing that is both painful and disruptive. I put it in large capsules and have tried up to 8 caps at a time with no noticeable difference. Sigh. So disappointed. So far the only thing that works is gaviscon Advanced i order from england. I have large bottles of it at work and at home. Plus a travel sized one.
