So, what is ethyl methyl cellulose?

Ethyl methyl cellulose (EMC) is a commonly used food ingredient that acts as a thickener, stabilizer and emulsifier. It's a modified form of cellulose, derived from wood pulp or cotton, that has been chemically altered by introducing ethyl and methyl groups into its structure. This modification allows EMC to withstand high temperatures, acidic conditions and mechanical stress, making it ideal for use in a wide range of food products. From sauces and dressings to ice creams and baked goods, EMC helps improve texture, consistency and stability, ensuring that your favorite foods look and taste their best.
