Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose HPMC Food Grade For Thickening, Emulsifying
Chemical Name :Hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC)
Molecular Formula :[C6H7O2(OH)3-m-n(OCH3)m(OCH3CH(OH)CH3)n]x
Structure Formula :
Where :R=-H , -CH3 , or -CH2CHOHCH3；X=degree of polymerization .
1 . Resistance to salting out : HPMC is a nonionic cellulose ether and it is not a polyelectrolyte.
2. Density: 1.39 g/cm3
3 . Surface activity : An aqueous solution of HPMC has a high surface activity and functions as a protective colloid agent , emulsion stabilizer and dispersant .
4 . Cohesiveness (Binding property) : HPMC , as a high performance binder, can also be used for molding food and medicine
5. Stability: The solid is flammable and incompatible with strong oxidants.
6 . Thermal gelation :An aqueous solution of HPMC will gel or precipitate when heated to a certain temperature , but it reverts to the original solution state on subsequent cooling . The temperature at which gelation or precipitation occur depends on the type of HPMC , its concentration and the rate of heating .
7 . Water retention :HPMC is a high effective water retention agent . Its pharmaceutical grade product can be widely used in food , cosmetics and many other fields .
8 . Film forming :HPMC provides a strong , flexible and transparent film having a good barrier property against oil and grease . In food application , this property is often utilized for water retention and oil adsorption .

【Purpose of Application】
HPMC can be directly applied to food not only as emulsifier, binder, thickener or stabilizer, but also as
packing material .
a) Thermal gelation and water retention of HPMC blocks oil absorption into food and moisture loss during frying, providing a fresh and crisp taste . Moreover, these properties aids in gas retention during baking for increasing baked volume and improving texture .
b) In molding food, the excellent lubricity and binding strength will improve its moldability and shape
The product is packed in polyethylene bag enclosed in composite fiberboard drum or paper bag . The net
weight is 25 kg/drum or 25 kg/bag .
【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.The product should be kept in the original bag and stored in the dry and clean place far away from the source of heat and not put together with other chemicals .
