Uses:  Enzymatically Hydrolysed Carboxymethyl is a enzymatic cellulose gum used as a binding and thickening agent. Also found in tobacco and detergents, toothpaste and paint.

Many different uses, mainly as thickening agent, but also as filler, dietary fibre, anti clumping agent and emulsifier.

Similar as cellulose, but better soluble in water. Found in many different products. Enzymatically Hydrolysed Carboxymethyl  is quite soluble, and can be fermented in the large intestine. It also lowers slightly the blood cholesterol level.

Large concentrations can cause intestinal problems, such as bloating, constipation and diarrhoea.

Description: Enzymatically Hydrolysed Carboxymethyl is the sodium salt of a carboxymethyl ether of cellulose, which has been partially hydrolysed by enzymatic treatment with food-grade Trichoderma reesei cellulase.

This is a type of fungus which has been grown in the Solomon Islands, and is used in the processing of bleached jeans, contributing in the ‘worn/bleached’ look.

Also used to convert cellulose into glucose.

Commercially prepared from wood and chemically sodium hydroxide added and carboxylic acids which are byproducts of petroleum refining. Petroleum products have an adverse affect on human bodies.
