So, what is cmc?

Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickening agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer. It is derived from cellulose, which is a natural substance found in plants, and is processed through a chemical modification to make it more soluble and functional in various food applications. CMC is a white, odorless powder that has the ability to form a gel when mixed with water. It is often used in products such as ice cream, salad dressings, and baked goods to improve texture, increase shelf life, and enhance overall quality. CMC is considered a safe and effective food additive, with no known adverse health effects when used in accordance with regulatory guidelines.
