So, what is methylcellulose?

Methylcellulose is a synthetic compound derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plant cell walls. As a food ingredient, methylcellulose is commonly used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer. It can be found in a wide range of products, including baked goods, dairy products, and sauces. Methylcellulose is a versatile ingredient that can add texture and viscosity to foods without altering their taste or odor. Additionally, it is known for its ability to create a gel-like consistency when combined with water, making it an excellent vegan alternative to gelatin.
