HPMC is odorless, tasteless,non-toxic cellulose ethers producted from natural hIgh molecular cellulose through series of chemical processing and achieved.It is white powder with good water solubility. It has thickening, adhesion ,dispersing, emulsifying, film, suspended, adsorption, gel, and protetive colloid properties of surface activity and maintain moisture function properties ect.
1.Resistance to salting out: HPMC is a nonionic cellulose ether and it is not a polyelectrolyte. The aqueous solution of HPMC is comparatively stable even in the presence of metal salts or organic electrolytes.
2.Surface activity: An aqueous solution of HPMC has a high surface activity and functions as a protective colloid agent, emulsion stabilizer and dispersant.
3.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.
4.pH stability:The viscosity of an aqueous solution of HPMC is hardly affected by acid or alkali, and the product can develop an original viscosity in the range of 3.0~11.0. Therefore, the solution viscosity tends to keep stable during prolonged storage.
5.Water retention:HPMC is a high effective water retention agent.
6.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.
7.Cohesiveness (Binding property): HPMC, as a high performance binder, can also be used for molding food and medicine.

HPMC can be used as Thermal gelation aids in gas retention during baking, increasing baked volumes and improving texture. Hpmc also provides a more moist texture, increasing shelf life, improved emulsification of batters and better freeze stability.
In glazes, icings, and coatings, HPMC food grade add lubricity for easier application, provide creamier texture, improved spread-ability. and clean flavor release. In addition, HPMC thermally gel during heating, keeping icings and glazes intact, and during cooling revert to the original consistency of the product.
Pie and pastry fillings
Thermal gelation reduces boil-over during baking and inhibits moisture migration from fillings to crusts during freezing. HPMC also improves freeze stability.
HPMC products modify ice-crystal size to give smoother textures. Increased air entrainment improves overrun.
HPMC products improve whipping properties for better body and appearance. Improved emulsion stability prevents syneresis and extends open times. HPMC inhibits phase separation in frozen toppings, even through repeated freeze cycles.
Structured vegetable products
HPMC products offer excellent film formation and high binding performance for foods that need to keep their components together. Products like vegetarian burgers, onion rings, and formed potato products are all improved by the binding strength and film formation qualities of HPMC products.
