How is Popping Boba Made?


Popping Boba is one of the newest and most popular toppings for frozen yogurt, bubble tea and snow ice. Popping Boba is a unique boba that is filled with real fruit juice flavors that burst in your mouth. Popping Boba is considered revolutionary in boba technology and is the newest topping craze for all types of drinks and yogurts alike. 

The ingredients for Popping Boba consist of water, sugar, fruit juice, calcium lactate, seaweed extract, malic acid, potassium sorbate, coloring, and fruit flavorings. The main ingredient is the seaweed extract, which is considered to be the outer shell of the Popping Boba.

How is Popping Boba Made?  

Popping Boba is made from a trendy new way of cooking called "Molecular Gastronomy."

Molecular gastronomy is a practice in food science that seeks to investigate the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur in cooking

For flavored liquids (such as fruit juices) containing no calcium, the liquid is thoroughly mixed with a small quantity of powdered sodium alginate, then dripped into a bowl filled with a cold solution of calcium chloride.

Just as a teaspoonful of water dropped into a bowl of vegetable oil forms a little bubble of water in the oil, each drop of the alginated liquid tends to form into a small sphere in the calcium solution. Then, during a reaction time of a few seconds, the calcium solution causes the outer layer of each alginated liquid sphere to form a thin, flexible skin. The resulting "Popping Boba" balls are removed from the calcium-containing liquid bath, rinsed in a bowl of ordinary water, removed from the water and saved for later use in food or beverages.

    This is so interesting, do you offer samples to be tested in classrooms or with girl scouts learning about Asian countries? The chemical reactions is a great STEAM lesson in itself. Thanks

    I discoveres these amazing little balls of deliciousness at a donut shop called sunrise donuts. I just had to know how they were made amd i was impressed. This sweet topping is probably one of the best scientific food inventions ive seen.
