If I wanted to make pineapple caviar (MG)

I have all the necessary reagents and I'd like to try to make pineapple caviar or spheres for a dinner party.

I found a recipe online:

Mix 2 gm alginate in 100 gm water using an immersion blender. Add 150 gm pineapple juice.

Make a bath of 2.5 mg calcium chloride.


I'm skeptical about this because I'm pretty sure pineapple will be acidic and I thought that algin-CaCl2 doesn't work in at low pH.

Any idea how much sodium citrate to add?

I plan to make fresh pineapple juice...no canned stuff.
