Ammonium alginate, as a hydrophilic colloid, is easily soluble in water to form a viscous solution.
Ammonium alginate can rapidly exchange the ions when encounters the calcium ions to form the gel, whose gel has the thermo irreversible property. The gel formed by the high-G alginates is hard but fragile; By contrast, the gel formed by high-M alginates is good flexibility but hardness. Adjusting the two ration, we can produce different strength gel.
