The Use and Contraindications of CMC

The Use and Contraindications of CMC

Carboxymethyl cellulose CMC is a water-soluble cellulose ether obtained by chemical modification of natural cellulose. Due to the poor water solubility of carboxymethyl cellulose acid structure, in order to be able to apply it better, its products are generally made into sodium salt.

1. The application of CMC food grade in the food industry

CMC food grade has the functions of thickening, emulsification, shaping, water retention, and stability. CMC uses its characteristics to make the food different. Adding CMC food-grade additives to food can reduce the production cost of food, improve food quality, improve food taste, and extend the shelf life of food. CMC food-grade additives are ideal food additives in the food industry. They can be widely used in various solid and liquid beverages, canned food, candies, pastries, meat products, biscuits, instant noodles, rolled noodles, quick-cooked food, quick-frozen snack foods, soy milk, yogurt, Peanut milk, fruit tea, fruit juice, and other food production.

2. The use and contraindications of CMC

CMC usage method and contraindications: directly mix carboxymethyl cellulose CMC with water and prepare it into a paste-like glue for use. When configuring the CMC paste, first add a certain amount of clean water to the batching tank with a stirring device. When the stirring device is turned on, sprinkle the CMC slowly and evenly into the batching tank, stirring continuously to make the CMC It is completely fused with water, and CMC can be fully melted. When dissolving CMC, the reason why it is necessary to evenly spread and stir continuously is to "prevent the problem of agglomeration, agglomeration, and reduce the amount of CMC dissolved when carboxymethyl cellulose CMC meets water", and to increase CMC The dissolution rate.

Precautions for the use of CMC: the mixing time and the time for the carboxymethyl cellulose CMC to completely melt are not the same, they are two concepts. Generally speaking, the stirring time is much shorter than the time required for CMC to completely melt, and the time required for both depends on the specific circumstances. The basis for determining the stirring time is: when CMC is uniformly dispersed in water and there is no obvious large agglomerate object, the stirring can be stopped, and the CMC and water can penetrate and merge with each other in a static state.

How to use CMC: first mix carboxymethyl cellulose CMC with dry raw materials such as white sugar, and then dissolve it in water. During operation, first put dry raw materials such as CMC and white sugar in a stainless steel mixer according to a certain ratio, close the top cover of the mixer, and keep the materials in the mixer in a sealed state. Then, turn on the mixer to fully mix the carboxymethyl cellulose CMC and other raw materials. Then, sprinkle the mixed CMC mixture slowly and evenly into the batching tank filled with water, and stir continuously. The subsequent operations can refer to the first dissolution method mentioned above.
