So, what is cellulose gel?

Cellulose gel is a common food ingredient that's derived from cellulose, the most abundant organic compound found in nature. It's a type of plant-based hydrocolloid that's used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in a wide range of processed foods. Cellulose gel is known for its unique properties, including its ability to absorb water and increase the viscosity of liquids. It's often added to low-fat or low-calorie products as a fat replacer or texture enhancer. While cellulose gel is generally considered safe for consumption, some people may experience digestive issues if they consume large amounts.
