So, what is powdered cellulose?

Powdered cellulose is a type of white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is derived from plant sources such as wood pulp or cotton. It is commonly used as a food additive to enhance the texture and consistency of processed foods, such as shredded cheese, baked goods, and snack bars. Powdered cellulose is also a popular ingredient in weight loss supplements because it has a high fiber content and can help promote feelings of fullness. Additionally, it is often used as a binding agent in pharmaceutical tablets and capsules. Despite its synthetic-sounding name, powdered cellulose is a natural and safe ingredient that is recognized by regulatory agencies worldwide.
