This carbohydrate based technology forms floating raft structures in the stomach and is used to control gastric reflux and heartburn. The formulation is an advance on alginate which used in many commercial gastric reflux type products. It has both physical and physiological advantages which cannot be achieved with alginate alone. These include: Improved mouth feel; Enhanced strength/durability; pH range functionality; Encapsulation/ release of flavours, nutrients and drugs.
