So, what is cellulose microcristallines?

Cellulose microcrystalline, also known as MCC, is a commonly used food ingredient made from plant fibers. It is a fine, white powder with a neutral taste and odor. MCC is often used as a bulking agent, stabilizer, and emulsifier in a wide range of food products, including baked goods, dairy products, and processed meats. It is also used as a low-calorie and high-fiber alternative to traditional thickeners and binders. Due to its ability to absorb water and improve texture, MCC is a popular ingredient in many low-fat and low-calorie foods.
