So, what is carboximetil celulosa?

Carboxymethyl cellulose, also known as CMC, is a food ingredient commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in various processed foods. It is derived from natural cellulose, a substance found in the cell walls of plants. CMC is odorless, tasteless, and has the ability to absorb and hold water, making it a useful ingredient in products such as ice cream, salad dressings, and baked goods. It is also used in gluten-free baking to improve texture and provide elasticity. CMC is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies and is a popular choice for food manufacturers due to its versatility and effectiveness.
