Fruit Caviar: How Do They Do It?

opinionatedchef | May 11, 2011 11:56 PM

On another, Boston, thread we started talking about these amazing 'fruit caviar' bubbles that are a topping option for a number of frozen yoghurt shops. Luther referred to them as
"alginate/calcium reagents used to make the "fruit caviar" topping". Can anyone explain in layman's terms how these bubbles work?( I am absolutely chemistry-challenged but am fascinated by these things.) Thanks much!
