    Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)

    Carboxymethyl cellulose, CMC, purified sodium CMC - as soon as this substance is not called. Today it is one of the most popular and affordable thickeners widely used in the food and confectionery industries. This component is also found on food packaging under the standard abbreviation E466.

    E466 additive: what is it and how is it synthesized?

    E466 is obtained by hydration reaction cellulose, that is, conversion into a water-soluble state. This state of cellulose is achieved due to the introduction of carboxymethyl groups into its structure.

    But only the hydration reaction of cellulose is not enough to obtain a food additive. So what is E466 made of? This substance is synthesized as a result of the reaction of interaction of cellulose with monochloroacetic acid and sodium hydroxide. Cellulose is carefully selected, monitoring its quality, because the safety of using the food additive in finished form directly depends on this.

    The process of obtaining component E466 takes place in 2 stages:

    • First, alkaline cellulose is obtained - for this it is simply treated with sodium hydroxide. This process in the scientific community is called mercerization.

    • ;

    • Ready alkaline cellulose reacts with monochloroacetic acid.

    As a result, the final product is obtained, in the composition of which up to 30% are by-components in the form of glycolate and sodium chloride. The carboxymethyl cellulose is then thoroughly cleaned of impurities and washed to achieve a purity level of 99.9%. We recommend buying such an E466 additive - it is absolutely harmless to human health.

    Carboxymethylcellulose: properties of a food additive

    Outwardly, this component looks like a fibrous powder or small granules of white or beige tint. This additive is highly soluble in hot and cold water, alkalis. CMC dissolves slightly worse in acids and glycerols. This additive is not soluble in mineral oils and organic liquids.

    Interestingly, the rate of dissolution of CMC particles increases as the water temperature rises. This is due to the fact that the viscosity of carboxymethylcellulose gradually decreases with increasing temperature of the solution or the environment. The optimum temperature for working with CMC in domestic and industrial environments is considered to be 50-60 ° C.

    When dissolving E466 additive, it is also important to take into account its size. Finely ground CMC powder will dissolve better in water and other types of liquids than a similar version of coarse grinding. This is due to the fact that each individual particle of a substance enters into a hydration reaction, without forming lumps. Remarkably, dissolved carboxymethyl cellulose does not have a pronounced taste and aroma.

    Visually, an aqueous solution of CMC looks like a sticky, viscous liquid. And the degree of its viscosity depends on the concentration of carboxyl groups in the finished product. If the carboxyl groups in CMC contain from 0.65 to 0.95 units, then the output will be a product with medium and high viscosity.

    Carboxymethyl cellulose is a food additive with unique physical properties. A particularly useful property of CMC is considered to be its ability to enhance the viscosity of aqueous solutions. When working with it, it is worth observing the main principle - ensuring uniform and rapid wetting of the entire volume of the substance before its viscosity begins to increase.

    Carboxymethyl cellulose can be bought in Ukraine with both low and high molecular weight. With their help, it is easy to independently prepare solutions of the desired viscosity.

    CMC is used in the process of making food due to its properties such as:

    • suspension;

    • film formation;

    • ;

    • binding;

    • stabilization;

    • thickening;

    • moisture retention; < Sugar mastic for confectionery.

    • Fermented milk and dairy products.

    • Whipped confectionery - nougat, pastilles.

    • Alcoholic beverages - in this case, CMC is worth buying and using as an affordable thickener. Its use makes it possible to prevent a sharp decrease in the concentration of sugar in alcohol, which often leads to a deterioration in its taste and aroma characteristics or even to spoilage. The use of this additive within the normal range allows you to obtain a product with improved taste and excellent aroma. For instance, the use of E466 in the production of rum provides it with the necessary transparency.

    • Fish and meat products - sausages, sausages, sausages, food deep-frozen and semi-finished products. E466 is a food additive designed to maximize moisture retention in them, as well as to prevent the destruction of meat and fish fibers during defrosting, their premature drying and the loss of healthy substances.

    • Pre-processed fruits and vegetables - the use of carboxymethyl cellulose allows to stabilize their pulp when preparing juices, nectars and baby purees, as well as improve the taste of the finished product.

    • Sauces and ketchups - carboxymethyl cellulose in food improves their quality without harming human health. Moreover, it is this thickener that gives them a velvety texture and improves flow. CMC is used in the preparation of these food products and is used to maintain their density.

    Is carboxymethyl cellulose necessary for mastic?

    For the manufacture of sugar pastes and various types of mastics for confectionery products, this substance is ideal as a thickener. They are used both for decorating finished confectionery products and for making edible decorative compositions from figurines and flowers of any level of complexity.

    Cellulose gum is used to make food glue, with the help of which confectioners fasten together parts of finished mastic products or attach them to the surface of the cakes. Important: the food additive CMC has a whitening effect, this should be taken into account when changing its natural color using dyes. If you need to paint the mastic in a bright color, its composition must certainly contain a large amount of CMC additive.

    The composition of confectionery mastic and the concentration of CMC in it directly depends on its purpose, it can be used for:

    • ready-made cake covers;

    • modeling flowers;

    • creating figures.

    • ;

    CMC is added in the confectionery industry depending on the type of mastic to be made. For the production of edible flowers, the mastic should contain a large amount of E466 additive - it provides the most transparent rolling and the realism of the finished products. This type of mastic is not suitable for sculpting figures and other decorative elements - it is too elastic and soft.

    To make figures from mastic, it should contain less carboxymethyl cellulose. So you can, if necessary, smooth the surface of the product and not be afraid of cracks appearing on it.

    The mastic, which is used to cover the surface of the cakes, is much softer in texture - it does not hold its shape as much as the previous version mastics. It will not work to make decorative elements from it, since they lose their original shape even before they are completely dry. A larger amount of fat is added to such mastic to increase its elasticity and prevent drying out during the rolling process.

    To make different types of figurines for decorating confectionery, mastic is used, somewhat reminiscent of confectionery paste for making flower compositions. In its composition, it often contains cocoa butter or its substitute, as well as chocolate. It is thanks to these components that it becomes possible to sculpt complex characters.

    The use of carboxymethyl cellulose in the confectionery industry in the manufacture of mastic makes it much easier to work with it and improve the taste characteristics of the finished product. It becomes more elastic, easier to roll and further molding.
