【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 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 .
