So, what is metil-cellulóz?

Methylcellulose is a versatile food ingredient that serves as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer. It is a plant-derived compound made from cellulose, which is the main component of plant cell walls. Methylcellulose can be used in a variety of foods, including baked goods, sauces, and desserts, to improve texture, increase viscosity, and prevent separation. This ingredient is also commonly used in vegan and vegetarian cooking as it can mimic the texture and mouthfeel of animal-based products. Methylcellulose is safe for consumption and has no known adverse effects on health.
