So, what is carboxy methylcellulose?

Carboxy methylcellulose (CMC) is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is a derivative of cellulose, which is a natural polymer found in plant cell walls. CMC is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is soluble in cold water, forming a clear and viscous solution. It is often used in the food industry to improve the texture and consistency of processed foods, such as baked goods, dairy products, and sauces. CMC is also used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries for similar purposes. It is considered safe for human consumption and is approved for use in many countries around the world.
