Cellulose Gum

Cellulose gum, also known as CMC or carboxy-methylcellulose, is a plant based food ingredient derived from cellulose, the most abundant organic compound on earth. Cellulose is found in the cell walls of all plants and is typically the biggest source of insoluble fiber in fruits and vegetables. Cellulose gum is often used in foods and beverages to create texture and improve mouthfeel, as well as to retain moisture and stabilize recipes.
