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 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.

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 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.
