Uses: Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose is used as a thickener, vegetable gum which may be produced from ethanol and cellulose.(one of a choice). Used in baby food, jelly type sweets, wine gums, iced lollies, confectionary, yogurts, egg white mix, fruit flavoured fillings, batter mixes - wide range of foods.

Although they have no major known adverse effects, but because some starches, ie corn can be genetically modified, this raises some cause for concern.

Contact with the manufacturer of the product should be used to ascertain it’s origins.

May cause diarrhoea. Babies should not be given soy products. See 1400.

Description: Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose is commercially produced from ethanol and cellulose. The resulting starch is more stable against acid, alkaline and starch degrading enzymes. It also provides better colour and shine to products.

They are prepared by physically, enzymatically, or chemically treating native starch, thereby changing the properties of the starch.

Modified starches are used in practically all starch applications, such as in food products as a thickening agent, stabilizer or emulsifier; in pharmaceuticals as a disintegrant; as binder in coated paper.

They are also used in many other applications. (Wiki)
