Biofoam® K is the trade name for a specially prepared food grade Propylene Glycol Alginate for use in the brewing industry. Biofoam® is the propylene glycol ester of Alginic acid which is a linear polymer of 1-4Beta D-Mannuronic acid and 1-4Alpha L-Guluronic acid residues extracted from marine brown algae (Phaeophycaeae).
Biofoam® K is best used by adding to the final filtered beer as a 1 – 2% solution. It is readily soluble in water, however care should be taken when dissolving so that lumps are not formed.
