Application of Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC)in Food

Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC) can be used as a food ingrdeient in:

•Aciditied milk drinks, drinking yoghurt

•Ice cream

•Bread and cakes 

•Beverage, juice and squashes

•Instant noodles


1.Aciditied milk drinks, drinking yoghurt

Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC) in acid drinks provides protein stability and mouthfeel. It prevents the coagulation and settling of milk proteins.

By choosing from a range of Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC), various textures and mouthfeel sensations can be obtained.

4.Bread and cakes

In ready mix powders for cake preparation, Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC) can control the dough viscosity and improve the tolerance to water variation.

In flat bread (tortillas, pita etc.) Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC) increases shelf life, improves rollability and flexibility and prevents the bread from drying up (cracking).

In regular bread and cakes, Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose(HPMC) adds volume and softness to the crumb as well as longer shelf life.
