What is Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC)?

Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC), commonly known as Cellulose Gum, is a water-soluble anionic linear polymer derived from cellulose, which is sourced from cotton or wood pulp. This versatile biopolymer stands out due to its solubility in both hot and cold water, making it highly adaptable across various applications. CMC's key properties include effective thickening, stabilizing, and binding abilities, along with significant water retention capacity. These attributes are crucial for its functionality in diverse industries, as CMC enhances texture and stability in products, while withstanding extreme temperatures, from boiling to freezing. Widely utilized for its consistency and performance-enhancing qualities, CMC is a vital ingredient in sectors ranging from food and beverage to pharmaceuticals, showcasing its multifaceted utility and indispensability.

How is Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) manufactured or produced?

Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) is manufactured by first dispersing cellulose, extracted from wood pulp or cotton, in an alkaline solution. This is followed by a reaction with monochloroacetic acid, substituting hydroxyl groups in the cellulose. The resulting product is a water-soluble, chemically reactive polymer with varied applications​​​​​​.

How is it packaged?

Securely packaged in a 1 kg plastic jar with a tamper-evident sealed cap, ensuring ease of use for smaller-scale needs.
