Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups (-CH2-COOH) bound to some of the hydroxyl groups of the glucopyranose monomers that make up the cellulose backbone. Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) is white or yellowish powder that is odorless ,tasteless and non-toxic It has high hygroscopicity and is soluble in water to form a thick liquid.
2. Application in food industry
Carboxymethyl Cellulose CMC Cellulose Gum has the ability to withstand boiling, freezing and even subfreezing temperatures for a short time allowing it to be a handy addition during the processing of specialty foods. It functions as a thickener, water retainer, emulsifier, stabilizer, protective colloid, suspending agent, gelling agent, and flow control agent. It is also used as film-forming and binding agent.
In order to solve these problems in the quality, an appropriate amount of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose can be added, because sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is dissolved in water to become a transparent stable colloid. The protein particles become the particles with the same electric charge under the protection of colloid film, making protein particles in a stable state. It also has a certain emulsifying effect, while reducing the surface tension between fat and water at the same time, and making fat sufficiently emulsified, so that quality problems can be satisfactorily resolved. Therefore, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is often applied in the food industry as a thickener, making food maintain the uniform flavor, concentration and texture.

【Transportation and Storage】
The direct addition of the product to water causes the formation of lumps. Lumping results from incomplete wetting of the individual powder particles . Only the powder in contact with water dissolves and the formed gelatinous membrane prevents the remaining powder from dissolving , causing a delay in the dissolution time . The following three methods are recommended for dissolution without forming lumps . The most convenient method should be chosen according to the purpose of your application.
