3. CMC Function
*Thickening: CMC can produce high viscosity at low concentration. It also acts as lubricant.
*Water retention: CMC is a water binder, helps increase shelf life of food.
*Suspending aid: CMC acts as emulsifier and suspension stabilizer, particularly in icings to control ice crystal size.
*Film forming: CMC can produce a film on the surface of fried food, eg. Instant noodle, and prevent absorption of excessive vegetable oil.
*Chemical stability: CMC is resistant to heat, light, mold and commonly used chemicals.
* Physiologically inert: : CMC as a food additive has no caloric value and can not be metabolized.
