So, what is carboxymethylcellulose?

Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is a versatile food ingredient that is widely used in the food industry as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is a water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose, a naturally occurring compound found in plants. CMC is odorless, tasteless, and has a high viscosity, making it useful in a variety of applications such as bakery products, dairy products, sauces, and dressings. It is also used in low-fat and reduced-calorie food products to improve texture and mouthfeel. CMC is considered safe for consumption and is approved by regulatory agencies around the world.
