Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose, CMC, E466, CAS no. 9004-32-4, appears as a white to cream powder, and has a viscosity of approximately 5-12000 M.pas.(1% water solution, 25℃, Brookfield viscometer) In food applications, CMC is a good emulsion stabilizer, thickener, and has excellent freeze, melt stability, can improve product flavor and prolong storage time. Function and uses: Thickening: CMC can produce high viscosity at low concentration. It also acts as lubricant; Water retention: CMC is a water binder, helps increase shelf life of food; Suspending aid: CMC acts as emulsifier and suspension stabilizer, particularly in icings to control ice crystal size; Film forming: CMC can produce a film on the surface of fried food, eg. instant noodle, and prevent absorption of excessive vegetable oil. CarboxymethylCellulose can compound with various stabilizers (Xanthan gum, Guar gum, Sodium alginate, Gelatin, Carrageenan), and have synergistic effect with them. As a professional Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose supplier, we supply Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose low and high viscosity food grade.

Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is the sodium salt of Carboxymethyl Cellulose. As a plant derived ingredients, Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is general recognized as halal. We will still audit another 2 key points to make sure that our Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is 100% halal: Are there any pig products used in manufacturing process of this ingredient? Does the ingredient contain Alcohol (impure) or other haraam ingredients?
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is the sodium salt of Carboxymethyl Cellulose. As a plant derived ingredients, Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is general recognized as Kosher classified as Parve. Moreover, Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is also regulated as Kosher for Passover.
- 5.1. Storage: Kept in dry, cool, and shaded place with original packaging, avoid moisture, store at room temperature.
- 5.2. Handling precaution: Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust.
No significant side effects reported.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Calcium Alginate is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
