So, what is natrium-carboxymethylcellulose?

Natrium-carboxymethylcellulose, also known as sodium carboxymethylcellulose or simply CMC, is a versatile food ingredient commonly used as a thickener, binder, and emulsifier. It is a water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose, a natural compound found in plants. CMC has a high viscosity and can create a smooth texture in various food products, such as ice cream, sauces, and baked goods. It also has the ability to stabilize and maintain the quality of processed foods, making it a popular additive in the food industry. Additionally, CMC is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and easily digestible, making it safe for consumption.
