So, what is methylethyl cellulose?

Methylethyl cellulose is a common food ingredient derived from plant-based sources such as wood pulp and cotton. It is used by food manufacturers as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier due to its ability to absorb water and create a gel-like texture. Methylethyl cellulose is also commonly added to low-fat or reduced-calorie foods to improve their texture and mouthfeel. As a food additive, methylethyl cellulose is generally considered safe for consumption and has no known adverse health effects. However, individuals with gastrointestinal conditions may experience discomfort or bloating after consuming foods containing this ingredient.
