So, what is metilcelulose?

Methylcellulose is a versatile food ingredient widely used in the food industry for its unique properties. It is a non-toxic, water-soluble compound derived from cellulose, a natural plant-based material. Methylcellulose is often used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer in various food applications such as soups, sauces, and bakery products. It is also used as a vegan alternative to gelatin in many plant-based products. Methylcellulose has the ability to form a gel-like substance when combined with water, making it an ideal ingredient for creating low-fat or fat-free foods. Additionally, it is known for its ability to improve the texture and mouthfeel of foods, resulting in a more satisfying culinary experience.
