So, what is carboxymethyl-cellulose?

Carboxymethyl-cellulose (CMC) is a highly versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in a wide range of food products. Derived from cellulose, CMC is a water-soluble polymer that is chemically modified to enhance its properties. It is commonly used in the production of baked goods, dairy products, sauces, dressings, and beverages, among other food products. CMC helps to improve texture, prevent separation, and maintain consistency in these products, making it an essential ingredient in many food manufacturing processes. It is also a popular ingredient in gluten-free and low-fat products due to its ability to mimic the texture and viscosity of fat and gluten.
