|Other name||:||Sodium salt of CaboxyMethyl Cellulose|
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose, CMC, E466, CAS no. 9004-32-4, appears as a white to cream powder, and has a viscosity of approximately 5-12000 M.pas.(1% water solution, 25℃, Brookfield viscometer) In food applications, CMC is a good emulsion stabilizer, thickener, and has excellent freeze, melt stability, can improve product flavor and prolong storage time. Function and uses: Thickening: CMC can produce high viscosity at low concentration. It also acts as lubricant; Water retention: CMC is a water binder, helps increase shelf life of food; Suspending aid: CMC acts as emulsifier and suspension stabilizer, particularly in icings to control ice crystal size; Film forming: CMC can produce a film on the surface of fried food, eg. instant noodle, and prevent absorption of excessive vegetable oil. CarboxymethylCellulose can compound with various stabilizers (Xanthan gum, Guar gum, Sodium alginate, Gelatin, Carrageenan), and have synergistic effect with them. As a professional Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose supplier, we supply Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose low and high viscosity food grade.
