Ice Cream Food Grade Carboxymethyl Cellulose
High viscosity CMC sodium food grade carboxymethyl cellulose for ice cream
Name: Carboxymethyl Cellulose
Molecular Formula: C6H7O2 (OH)2OCH2COONa
1 . Characteristics:
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.
When the pH value is greater than or less than the isoelectric point of protein, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose can form a compound structure with protein, help to improve the stability of emulsion, and on the other hand, is also beneficial to the shape maintenance of ice cream 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.
