Viscoelastic behaviour of alginate gels
A number of polysaccharides are employed in food products partly because of their ability to gel under various conditions. In recent years considerable interest has been shown in these materials and a certain amount of progress has been made in elucidating the chemical nature of the inter-chain linkages which form on gelation (1).
