So, what is carboximetilceluloză?

Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is a commonly used food ingredient derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plant cell walls. It is a water-soluble white powder that acts as a thickener and stabilizer, improving the texture and consistency of foods such as dairy products, baked goods, and sauces. CMC is also used in certain dietary supplements and over-the-counter medications due to its ability to form a protective barrier in the gastrointestinal tract, aiding in the release and absorption of active ingredients. Despite its widespread use, CMC has been subject to controversy surrounding its safety and potential health effects at high levels of consumption.
