Unique Functionality for a Broad Range of Applications

What is it?

Alginates are natural hydrocolloids that harness unique properties of Norwegian brown seaweed to deliver premier performance in multiple pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications.



  • Strong consistent raft formation acts as physical barrier to prevent stomach acid from entering the oesophagus
  • pH-controlled release mechanism of alginate matrices is uniquely suited for highly-acid-soluble drugs
  • Film-forming, pH-sensitive properties, make them ideal enteric coating agents
  • Sodium alginates offer steric and electrostatic stabilization for nano-suspensions
