CMC FG5000

CMC FG5000

KimaCell® CMC FG5000 sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is often used as a thickener or stabilizer in food processing. CMC is non-toxic and non allergenic, and its aqueous solution has high viscosity, good film-forming property, gel property and compatibility. It is widely used in biodegradable packaging materials. CMC base film has good tensile strength, which is basically equivalent to the tensile strength of synthetic materials. Therefore, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is widely used in the field of food preservation.

Application of CMC FG5000

KimaCell® CMC FG5000 sodium carboxymethyl cellulose can be used as an edible coating material, which can be mixed with other thickeners and applied on the surface of some foods to maximize the freshness of foods. As an edible material, it will not cause adverse effects on human health. Therefore, as an ideal food additive, edible CMC Na is widely used in food production in the food industry. It has good film-forming property, rich sources, low cost, non-toxic and harmless, and is easy to degrade. Now it is widely used in the field of food preservation. It can not only effectively prevent water loss, regulate fruit respiration, slow down the loss of organic matter, delay fruit aging, but also protect the peel, reduce mechanical damage during transportation, prevent microbial invasion, and reduce the risk of decay.
