Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel/Colloidal Grade

Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel/Colloidal Grade


Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel is a colloidal microcrystalline Cellulose coated with Sodium CarboxymethylCellulose, comprises of Microcrystalline Cellulose and Sodium CarboxymethylCellulose. Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel can stabilize, emulsify, thicken food and beverages, increase elasticity and retain and bind water in bakery applications, fat-replacer in meat processing. Dispersed in water with high shear mixing at appropriate concentration forms an insoluble gel with viscoplastic and thixotropic properties, so the performance of Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel will have less variance compared to those of natural gums.


Name: Microcrystalline Cellulose Gel/Colloidal Grade
