What is popping boba made of?

Popping boba or bursting boba is made through the wonders of molecular gastronomy. Molecular gastronomy is a subdiscipline of food science that seeks to investigate the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur in cooking.

For flavored liquids like fruit juices that don’t contain any calcium, the liquid is mixed with a tiny quantity of powdered sodium alginate, then dripped into a bowl filled with a cold solution of calcium chloride.

Adapting the same principle as a teaspoonful of water dropped into a bowl of vegetables makes a little bubble of water in oil, each drop of the alginate liquid forms a small sphere in the calcium solution. Thereafter, during a reaction time of a few seconds, the calcium solution causes the outer layer of each sphere to form a thin, flexible skin. The “Popping Boba” balls have then removed the solution, washed in a bowl of good old’ h20, removed from the water, and saved for later use in food or beverages. And that’s how the popping sensation is made.
