KimaCell®HPMC K15M FG is made of natural cellulose (wood pulp and refined cotton, etc.) after alkalization and etherification reaction with etherification agent (methane chloride and propylene oxide, etc.), and then neutralized, washed, centrifuged, dried, and ground A non-ionic polymer water-soluble polymer produced after the process.
Compared with other water-soluble edible colloids, Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose has two unique characteristics: reversible thermal gelation and aqueous surface activity. Generally speaking, the viscosity of most edible colloids will decrease with the increase of temperature, while methyl cellulose will gradually produce dense or loose gels at different gel temperatures with the increase of temperature, so the viscosity will continue. Rise to act as thermal thickener. At the same time, this process is reversible. When the temperature drops and cools down, the gel will gradually disappear and the solution will return to its original state.

KimaCell® HPMC K15M FG Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose is used in fried food due to its unique reversible thermal gel and surface activity, forming a continuous and dense gel film on the surface of the food, which to a certain extent blocks the exchange of substances (water and oil) between the food and the outside world, which not only effectively reduces the oil content, but also brings the following benefits:
Improve the taste of fried products;
To extend the oil change interval of frying oil;
Improve the yield of fried products;
Control and reduce the cost of fried products.
Food tastes and preferences may vary regionally, but improving health is a global desire. Fried food is a popular food item around the world, yet consumers expect fried food to reduce the fat content while maintaining the taste and texture. Reducing fat uptake during frying not only results in healthier foods, but also reduces production costs. It is for this reason that Kima uses its global influence and rich experience in the food industry to join hands with our global customers to develop solutions suitable for the region. Reduced use of sugar and oil, and lower fat content are among the many benefits of using our products.
