HPMC Food Grade Cellulose Gum,
E464 HPMC Food Grade,
Powdered Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose
Cellulose gum is a common food additive used to thicken and stabilize a variety of foods. Cellulose gums harness the properties of other substances found in nature to impart useful characteristics in food. Cellulose gums can help keep foods and beverages stable so nutrients remain mixed, ensure that oil and water based ingredients don’t separate and help produce a consistent texture that consumers expect from certain foods. Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose HPMC is a cellulose made from plant fibres which is certified as a food additive E464 by the EU and the FDA. It improves the look, texture, and taste of a range of food and beverage applications

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.
