KimaCell®HPMC E4M FG Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a derivative of cellulose contained in wood pulp/refined cotton. In the food industry, HPMC is usually used as a thickener, emulsifier, stabilizer and water retention agent for ice cream, bread, salad dressing, etc. agent. Cellulose is the most widely distributed and most abundant polysaccharide in nature. It is often used as a food packaging material in the food industry. Permeability, etc., can be used as active packaging materials for fruits, vegetables, beans and meat products, used for moisturizing, anti-humidity and anti-oxidation. Packaging materials developed from plant cellulose include fruit paper and seaweed paper. The Sakai Institute of Physics and Chemistry in Japan has successfully extracted food fiber from bean dregs and processed it into edible paper.
