methyl cellulose
cellulose methyl ether
 
Notes:
methylester of cellulose. methylcellulose is used as an emulsifying and suspending agent in cosmetics, pharmaceutics and the chemical industry. it is used therapeutically as a bulk laxative. Stabiliser, thickener and emulsifier for foodstuffs Different kinds of methyl cellulose can be prepared depending on the number of hydroxyl groups substituted. Cellulose is a polymer consisting of numerous linked glucose molecules, each of which exposes three hydroxyl groups. The Degree of Substitution (DS) of a given form of methyl cellulose is defined as the average number of substituted hydroxyl groups per glucose. The theoretical maximum is thus a DS of 3.0, however more typical values are 1.3?2.6.; Methyl cellulose (or methylcellulose) is a chemical compound derived from cellulose. It is a hydrophilic white powder in pure form and dissolves in cold (but not in hot) water, forming a clear viscous solution or gel. It is sold under a variety of trade names and is used as a thickener and emulsifier in various food and cosmetic products, and also as a treatment of constipation. Like cellulose, it is not digestible, not toxic, and not allergenic.

Benecel™ methylcellulose
Odor: odorless
Use: Benecel methylcellulose (MC) and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) are versatile, multifunctional food gums that are unique because they reversibly gel at elevated temperatures. This family of products is compatible with nearly all common food ingredients. Benecel MC and HPMC perform many functions in processed foods, depending on type, grade, use level and conditions. Among these functions are thermal gelation, film formation, thickening, binding and water retention. The polymeric structure of these products, which is different from other cellulosics, improves cohesion, texture and mouthfeel. Small amounts of Benecel MC and HPMC significantly enhance emulsion stability as well. This is particularly useful in stabilizing whipped toppings and desserts.

TIC Gums
TICACEL® HV Powder
Flavor: characteristic
TICACEL MC HV is a high viscosity methylcellulose. Cold water soluble, TICACEL MC HV gels when heated to temperatures from 132°F to 148°F. This thermal gelation property makes it an ideal stabilizer for preventing boil out in baked fillings, adding cling to sauces, and regulating viscosity during processing stages. When used at roughly 0.1% TICACEL MC HV adds a crisper texture to rice noodles while still maintaining the desired flexibility.
TIC Gums
TICACEL® LV Powder
Flavor: characteristic
TICACEL® LV is a low viscosity methylcellulose. Cold water soluble, TICACEL LV gels when heated to temperatures from 118°F to 132°F. This thermal gelation property makes it an ideal stabilizer for preventing boil out in baked fillings, adding cling to sauces, and regulating viscosity during processing stages.
