So, what is cellulose gums?

Cellulose gums are a type of food additive commonly used as a thickening agent and stabilizer in various food products. They are made from natural cellulose fibers that are chemically modified to form a gum-like substance. Cellulose gums are soluble in water and have excellent water-binding properties, making them particularly useful in dairy products, sauces, dressings, and baked goods. They are also known for their ability to improve texture, increase shelf life, and enhance the overall quality of food products. Cellulose gums are generally considered safe for consumption and are approved by regulatory agencies worldwide.
