9. Carboxy Methyl Cellulose Sodium (CMC) - Food Grade
CAS NO.: 9000-11-7
Molecular Formula: [C6H7O2(OH)2CH2COONa]n
Carboxymethyl Cellulose Sodium (CMC-Na) is a cellulose derivative obtained by chemically modificating the natural cellulose. It is one of the most important water soluble polymers with many advantages that other natural or synthetic glues do not have.
CMC is white and flowing fine powder. It is tasteless, smelless, mould-proof, non-toxic, non-flammable and easily dissolved in water to become transparent viscose solution.
CMC solution has good properties of thickening, adhering, emulsifying, and stabilizing. Membrane forming, moisture-holding, shape-holding, dispersing and anti-enzyme. The solution of CMC can be mixed with dissolvable animal glues, glycerin, sobbitol, Arabic gum, pectin, xanthic gum and dissolvable starch.
Check the table at the end.
Note: The specs can be adjusted as required.
CMC as acidic beverage additive: - Stabilizes yogurt and prevents phase separation and settling; - Improves mouth feel; - Allows longer shelf life.
CMC in Icecream: Stabilizes the even dispersion of water, fat, protein and sugar, prevents crystallization, imparts smooth mouth feel.
CMC in bakery: Modifies flour viscosity, improves water retention and storage stability.
CMC in instant noodle: Improves the strength and boiling resistance of instant noodles.
CMC in low-carb food: CMC is calory free and physiologically inert.
Package and Storage:
Packed in multiply paper bags or fiber drums(25KG), or as per customer requirement; Keep dry
